Countdown to the next Shutdown - 90 days

It’s during these less stressful times of Congressional inaction and finger-pointing that we can take a few moments to laugh at lunacy that doesn’t imminently threaten hundreds of thousands of jobs or the world economy. Like Karl Rove writing in the Wall Street Journal that the President deliberately tricked House Redumblicans into shutting down the government as part of some Machiavellian scheme to make them look bad.
