It's amusing watching the talking heads on Sunday. The liberals are enjoying the moment, the liberal MSM is pretending as if 'wow, those republicans learned their lesson...now can things get done', and the so-called "conservatives" are focused on capitulating and how the GOP needs to soul search and appeal to more liberals. And they also engaging in the 'healthy' discussions on those incredibly important issues as drugs in CO and gay marriage. So as the tools continue to put on this grand facade, we have no discussions on the pending layoffs, pending impacts to the energy industry with coal mining changes, etc. You get left with the impression of fiddling while Rome burns. So how long before reality starts to hit home?
