(The New York Times)   The longer this goes on, the more John Boehner is sounding like General Paulus, trapped in the frozen desert of Stalingrad, trying desperately to convince his troops that the future holds anything but abject and total surrender   (nytimes.com) divider line 26

I have this odd feeling that after the shutdown, the first major House vote will be a repeal of Obamacare that will pass. On one hand that just makes me do a sad chuckle, kind of like watching a clown die by choking on a balloon animal.

With his troops anxious for a way forward, Speaker John A. Boehner began a closed-door meeting of House Republicans on Friday morning with a recitation of letters from local schoolchildren on how they deal with stress.

Clearly, he's taking advice from the people the GOP most identify with.

12349876: SnapeShots: Dinki: So who is playing Hitler, screaming over the radio " The 6th Army will hold its positions to the last man and the last round."? Cantor? Limbaugh? The Kochs?

Only two posts to get this Godwinned. Good job!

OH THE HUMANITY!  A headline that directly reference WWII gets Godwinned!  WHAT ARE THE ODDS!  WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!


You know who else lost his shiat over discussions of the Battle of Stalingrad?

foo monkey: Ambivalence: I do hope Pelosi's attempt to circumvent Boehner to pass a clean CR works. It would be deliciously ironic for republicans to depend on democrats to save us all from the crisis republicans created.

Would that be Operation Uranus?


Instantly brought this oldie but goodie to mind...

The GOP has certainly scored a huge victory here.  There is literally no downside.  Keep up the pressure, stalwart champions of freedom!  The nation is depending on you!

And don't throw me into that briar patch, neither.

jjorsett: The Democrats ought to be dropping to their knees in gratitude for the shutdown. If not for that, the news media might have to cover the ongoing catastrophe that is the opening of Obamacare. Thanks, Republicans!


Yes, sweetie. millions of Americans being able to afford medical care is a catastrophe.

A catastrophe. Healthy Americans, going to work, helping reduce our federal deficit. A catastrophe.

When the media has repeatedly compared your behavior to children's tantrums, you can't just serve up a hanging curveball like that.

I saw Boehner as more of a Helmuth Weidling myself. The Fuhrer is ranting in the bunker about how the shutdown will kill Obamacare all the while the Democrats are on the street to the Reagan Ranch.

If that allegory is too unsettling, we can try an other third of the Axis. Romneyshima and Ryansaki got nuked. But Emperor Reagan's dead, so there's nobody left to announce to the Tea Party Generals and the people that the war's over.

Maybe its too early for this, I think I need another Coke.

Why would it pass when 40+ have failed

I'm guessing that he means pass the House. The Senate would reject it as usual.


Yep, meant pass the house, die in the Senate like the last 40 times we've wasted time. I thought my clown dying by choking on a balloon animal gave it away. Maybe I should have went with a juggler who dies while parachuting because he gets impaled on the Empire State building.
