“Conservative” Republican congressman Marlin Stutzman, on why he and his colleagues are keeping the government shut down:
“We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”
Srsly? “Disrespected”? Is Stutzman going to order a drive-by on Harry Reid? As Eric Hoffer once said, it’s bad news when the strong adopt the tactics of the weak. When Tea Partiers start to sound like street hoods, the Republic is in sad shape.
But don’t get mad. Get even. The only thing that might persuade the Republi-thugs to see reason is a flood of money into the coffers of the DCCC.
