|It's like a big, festive carnival up there on the Hill. Whee!|
And what I'm getting now is a cross between a soap opera and a circus, with as much nuance as a kindergarten recess. I just read the current status: Principal Obama has invited the kids to come have snacks and juice in his office so that they can all work it out. I only hope that all the snacks are locally grown so that I can have some kind of positive feeling about the whole thing, because otherwise it's just a giant mess.
Seriously, this is how Paul Kane and Jon Cohen of the Washington Post described it today:
As the deadline neared, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) exchanged insults, each side blaming the other for the stalemate.Swell. Did they fire their Nerf guns at each other, too?
You've got a job to do folks. Stop the drama, and start behaving like the educated negotiators that you all claim to be.
