I have this theory. The Republican leadership aren't very bright. Now I'm speaking comparatively, of course. Compared to some of the people I talk to on the phone all day, they're geniuses. But compared to the skillful politicians of history, not just of our country but in the history of skillful politicians, these guys are really the pits.
They have ideas, or I should say one idea, and it boils down to this: Let's do what we did before. If it was successful, successful it will be again. If it wasn't, now is our chance to turn it around.
So now we have shutdown and when Obama gets re-elected...impeachment. Watch.
