    Well, it is pushing a dead weight.

    All things seek their own level.

    The Republicans are sabotaging the law of the land, something approved by most Americans, the Congress in a perfectly legal manner, signed by the President, and validated as Constitutional by the Supreme Court.
    No matter how much some of you rightwingers hate this, you should know this is true. They are nothing but saboteurs, and it isn’t even for some noble principle — it is for personal political gain, no more, and to prevent a law they know will be successful and popular.

    " it is for personal political gain, no more, …."

    I think there is a little weakness in your argument, motive. Even though D.C. sometimes seems to be an isolated enclave of insanity, they do peek out to check what the polls say. From what I’ve seen, 72% to 80% of those polled (depending on the poll) are showing objection to the Republican strategy of government shutdown. Those numbers are way, way outside any margin of error and with multiple polls reporting numbers like those above, the probability of a polling anomaly are near zero. With poll numbers like these, I think the Republican reasoning isn’t for political gain. They are currently shooting themselves in both feet. I am curious as to what the reasons are for the path they have taken.

    Not only do the Republicans know that the law will (eventually) be very popular, they publicly admit it! Which of course makes this bizarre situation even more bizarre. (And Uncle Sam better watch out for elephant droppings besides everything else………)

    Well the Democrat wedge (a wedge being the simplest tool known to man) he is pushing that elephant up keeps getting steeper.

    You’re essentially right, and it’s a kind of fanaticism we’ve seen before driving all of this. Anyone who doesn’t march in perfect lockstep can look forward to a bayonet in the back from his “peers”.
    How long until we hear Ted Cruz asking “Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Democratic Party of the United States”?

    tea party issue for their “constituents”, pass bills so that “cost plus” military contractors get paid…everything else is “big is baaaaaaaaaaaaad” script. (see tory sarin palin)

    As torys they do not know they are unpaid bit agents..wrapped in flags, and ‘informed’ by 1864 ‘economics; their ’freedoms’ to buy or sell anyone or anything…they attack the FORMS and size of the Republic, not the content.

    Just who put a bilion dollar short on the u.s. dollar last week?

    You mistake is in calling Ted Cruz stupid. He isn’t. Never under estimate your opponent.

    I agree, but you can’t overestimate Cruz’ hubris. It’s positively Gingrichian.

    But is Lilliputian compared to the massive Napolean complex Obama has.
