"This is shaping up to be one of the more absurd chapters in American legislative history. They've backed themselves into such a corner that they're starting to cannibalize each other. Boehner knows it's a loser but has to appease his nutball caucus. The House nutball caucus expects to pass it and then expects Cruz and company to filibuster in the Senate. The Senators are freaking out that it might actually happen, especially Mitch McConnell who's trying to be both a Tea Partier and a sane person so he can get re-elected (a daunting task, needless to say.) It's a GOP clusterfuck. So, let's just sit back and watch the show. It's a shame for the country, but I suppose it's what we deserve. We've enabled these people for a long, long time. It was inevitable that they'd finally just explode into crazy one day."
