    And most of what we see is just that, a show.

    I do not believe the extremists will be allowed to default on the world,
    I see arrests or violence in the near future.

    The government shutdown continues apace
    But soon the Tea Party will have to save face
    A financial default can never be arty
    And the people now know it’s de fault of de Party
    The people have spoken: blackmail is a crime
    A damn dirty shame and a waste of our time
    Tea Party insanity? Quite clear to see
    They’re all drinking Koolaid, it seems, and not tea
    And now they are trapped, though lacking in thought
    They’re trying to find a brand-new plot to plot
    Like Christie, who opted for lap band, not trainer
    The Party will blame not themselves, they’ll blame Boehner

    Nice poem! And, as Time Magazine pointed out, sometimes it really is just the Republicans at fault, and you shouldn’t pretend that both parties are to blame.

    It’s much more vaudvillian and slap stick than shown…

    It’s not a show…Instead, it demonstrates what a dangerous level of independence from oversight the elected elitist class has in America.

    What the heck, the primary function of government has become to entertain and hinder the growth of GDP, now that it’s simply irrelevant we can all get back to ignoring it.
