Seriously. Because when the Republicans first started this shutdown mess, it was about defunding Obamacare. Since that wasn’t going to happen, it then became about just delaying Obamacare. Now it’s not about that anymore either, and most Republicans sound like they aren’t quite sure what it’s about, only that they want to get something out of it.
So before the economy collapses and everything goes to hell, let’s give the Republicans that pony they never got from their parents. Or a plate of cookies. A gold star. One of those participation trophies that says you lost, but you still showed up to the game, so yay! A kiss on the boo boo to make it better. An apology from Obama’s election campaign team for being too smart? More Benghazi hearings, this time with cheerleaders? Another copy of the President’s birth certificate?
Is there a little holiday present we can give the Republicans to help end this insanity? I can think of a lot of things, except for what they really want, which is to see the President impeached, tarred and feathered. That ain’t happening, guys. Take the pony instead.
