    The shutdown helped a Democrat win the governor’s race in Va.

    And the bestest thing about all of this – we can blame that guy in the White House even though our fingerprints are all over it!! Good job, guys!

    Of course now the guy in the White House wants to delay Obamacare just like the Republicans wanted to do. If Obama had been willing to listen and work with the GOP, the shut down would not have happened.

    Obama already tried working with the GOP. He adopted the Heritage Foundation’s health-care plan lock, stock, and barrel. It had already been field-tested by Republican Gov. Mitt Romney in Massachusetts. So what did he get for not merely working with them but utterly capitulating to them? Undying enmity, rancor, venom, hatred, and opposition. Yet your prescription for him is to come back for another heaping helping of the same. You must really think he’s as dumb as all the right-wing bloviators claim he is.

    Even the leader of the herd produces b*llsh*t.

    As a big ol’ rural WASP white guy who’s been around long enough to remember where I was when I heard that Kennedy was shot, I perfectly well know ugly racism when I see it. Frankly, I’m at least mildly surprised that the Congressional Teapublicans & Co. haven’t yet succumbed to the temptation to go and burn a cross on the White House lawn.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to do it. They would probably bring marshmallows, too.

    Well, Herdleader. not “just like the Republicans”, who wanted the Obama care to fail miserably and terminally; he took the resonsibility for the many glitches and is trying to mend the act as fast as possible, and to make it cover as many as possible. There is a difference between an act with bugs to be eliiminated and an act of sabotage.

    But it’s always sad to see people feeling they have to leave a party they have always supported because it has been taken over and changed so much. Happened over here in the UK in the 80s when the Labour party, traditional home of the blue-collar worker, got infiltrated by Militant, a Trotskyist group. Just as the Tea Party seem to have done, they managed to take control of the party’s local apparatus simply by being sufficiently obnoxious that they drove away all the old hands. Only lasted a few years, as these things inevitably do, but it did a lot of damage at the time, including making Labour unelectable for over a decade.

    Nice little summary of the twisted minds which bedevil our country..Trudeau puts the “liberal” media to shame.

    This must have been the easiest strip he’s ever done. It was already written for him.

    “Liberals tend to underestimate how many people share their ideology, while conservatives tend to overestimate those who agree with them, U.S. researchers say.”
