"You don't HAVE the farking votes, dipshiats! We know you never did!"
"Ve don't care. Ve still vant Obamacare gone, America, or ve fark you up."
"Fark you. Fark the 232 of you."
"Hey, cool it Obama."
"No, without the votes, there is no defunding. That's what democracy is. Those are the farking rules."
"We shut down the government!"
"We thought we were getting Obamacare defunded!"
"It's not fair!"
"Fair? WHO'S THE FARKING NIHILIST HERE? WHAT ARE YOU, A BUNCH OF FARKING CRYBABIES?"

Soon it will be time for some 14th Amendment solutions.

Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Sounds like this whole shiatshow is an unconstitutional power grab by the Republican controlled House of Representatives.

Politicians only respond to one thing: money.

1) Make a list of the nutjobs that are holding this whole thing up
2) Everybody donate 25 cents or a dollar or whatever you can afford, each day, to an opponent of theirs. If they currently have no opponents, then donate the money to the DNC.
3) Send them an email letting them know that you donated, and will continue to donate, as long as they continue to be jackasses.

"We're not going to be disrespected," conservative Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., added. "We have to get something out of this. And I don't know what that even is."

Wow.  A congressman speaking the truth.

The GOP has to get something out of this to save face.

Obama can't afford to give them a single thing, as it would guarantee the bad GOP behavior continues.

We are so farked.

Stutzman looks like a douchebag who needs to get to the hair club for men in 26 minutes.

I have a new goal in life: to ensure that referring to Republicans must be immediately followed by calling them what they are - farking coonts.

LouDobbsAwaaaay: JimmyTheHutt: Once upon a time, back in the days of Regan and George H. W. Bush, I was proud to call myself a Republican.

Now, I just weep for the party of Lincoln and what it's become.

What was worthy of pride during the days of Reagan and GHW Bush?


The hijack was just beginning in those days, and there was a lot less stupid.

To be fair, it's the party of Lincoln in name only. It's the same states that opposed Lincoln that oppose the ACA.

Do you know what's nice?  Seeing Reid and Obama have a backbone and defend the position of the people that voted for them.  For once, after six farking years of capitulation after capitulation after capitulation. Seeing Reid practically apologize for ever standing up to the Republicans in the first place.

For once, he's taking as hard-line a stand for the majority that voted for him as the teabaggers do for their positions.  It's about farking time.

That being said, I expect Reid to cave any minute and issue an official apology accepting complete blame for the shutdown and delaying the ACA provision not only for one year but "let's go ahead and make it ten".

Because I was bored, I looked up the 80 Representatives that signed Mark Meadows' letter to Boehner asking not to let any spending bill out of the House without it defunding Obamacare and checked how they did in their home district.

The mean margin of victory was 32 points. The median was 28.

So yeah, a lot of those guys are untouchable no matter what. But on the bright side, some are not, here are all the signatories with a margine of victory of 10% or less:

Rodney Davis IL-13 MoV 0.4
Dan Benishek MI-1 MoV 0.5
Jackie Walorski IN-2 MoV 1
Michelle Bachmann MN-6 MoV 1.21
Andy Barr KY-6 MoV 3
Keith Rothfus PA-12 MoV 3
Steve King IA-4 MoV 8
Richard Hudson NC-8 MoV 8
Randy Weber TX-14 MoV 8
Justin Amash MI-3 MoV 9
Tim Walberg MI-7 MoV 10
