Heard a Tea Party think-tanker-adviser-founder-pundit this morning who unintentionally summed up the Government shut-down perfectly with this self-centered, oblivious, ignorant, flip-James Madison– and- company- over- in- the- grave comment:
Hey, look, I have no problem at all funding the parts of the government I agree with . .
It shouldn’t matter if you’re a Democrat, Republican, Tea-Party, Whig, Bull Moose, Free Soiler for that matter – this . . . . sentiment is anathema to a democracy.
