The jig is up, or it should be. The Republicans don’t want to drive the car to the cliff’s edge; they want to floor it and go right over, damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead. They want to send this country into default. Of course they’ll drag the rest of the world along with them, but too bad, so sad. Then, when the world financial markets are collapsing, they’ll take a page from the Michigan governor’s book and declare financial martial law, and oh-so-conveniently drop the first word from that phrase. In the midst of their self-imposed crisis, they’ll suspend the Constitution, send Barack Obama and the rest of the Democrats to Guantanamo Bay, elevate themselves to co-Presidents, and impose the Republicans’ horrific vision on the country.
I really wish there was a way to send Seal Team 6 to both their houses one night and pound some sense into their goddamned ideological stupidheads.
