Wow! But so true about the carefully cultivated ignorance.

Not to mention that I have a great fear that all today's "agreement" where Boehner said they won 2 concessions to reduce the budget - and there is no way to go back and reverse that. This scares me greatly. One because it was so vague what the great concessions were (and how much is political rhetoric).

But even more that all we've done is dodged the bullet for a couple of months. Come Jan/Feb we'll have the same problem come up. And based on Congress's record, we'll just be in for more of the same. (Of course the repubs are hoping something will happen to change the playing field).

What's amazing is that this guy has been in the House a mere ten months, has the brains and the disposition of a boll weevil, likely struggles to balance his checkbook, and yet, the New York Times is looking for quotes from him.

He's one of those crackpots that America produces, but, in the past, kept carefully hidden in obscurity. Today, he gets a national venue to dispense his particular brand of lunacy.

Talk about normalizing insanity.
