Hoisting On Their Own Petards…   Leave a comment

Remember back in December 2012 that debt ceiling move that backfired on Mitch McConnell? At the time, the Senate Minority Leader had offered a bill that would’ve given the President unlimited authority to raise the debt ceiling, subject to a 2/3rds’ override of Congress..well, it was an unmitigated act of trolling on the Turtle’s part that royally backfired on him as McConnell had to filibuster his own bill when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid offered to bring it up for a vote right then-and-there…

Which brings us to this week, when the GOP-led House passed a continuing resolution which would fund the federal government until mid-December ‘sans Obamacare. Now, we all know that House Republicans have become so high on their own BS as to ignore the realities of the world around them, but this, as Booman Tribune points out, takes it to the level of absolute insane troll logic in that Senate Republicans are now faced with a veritable Morton’s Fork of political choices here. They can either: (a)go along with House Republicans and turn the American people against them come 2014 or (b)go tell the House GOP to get stuffed, which will both enrage the Tealiban wing of the GOP and upset the American people.

Whatever happens, it will definitely be fun watching the festivities, won’t it?
