Am I The Only One Who Imagines They End Up Voting In their PJ's?
I've been following the back and forth pretty closely. As far as I can see the only way the government re-opens and the debt ceiling is lifted is if Boehner waits for his caucus of angry tea partiers to leave town and then he and Cantor about face, quick march into the House and with the help of Pelosi hold the vote while 40 or 50 of his most intransigent caucus members are simply not present. I presume that they will do this as though no one will notice, because up until now that has been their modus operandi--to say and do the stupidest things in public and in private and then look surprised when they are queried about them afterwards. Boehner seems to have all the stealthy grace of the permanently potted so he is used to knocking over the furniture while lurching up and downstairs at night and probably thinks no one notices.
