“Duck, Dodge, and Dismantle” 2


The interviewer spins wheels to get her to commit to concessions.

Of course, if she did so, they would not longer be “concessions.”

They would be the starting point in the next round of talks.

(I nearly wrote “negotiations” instead of “talks,” but there aren’t any “negotiations.” It takes two to “negotiate.” Going limp on the floor and yelling “my way or the highway” in Republican fashion is not “negotiating.”)

    I’d like to think this can’t get any worse.  But wow, these guys really want a melt down so they can start over.  Or at least they think this is going to be some sort of ctl+alt+delete thing in their mind. 
    I wonder if there ever was a time in a “democracy” that so many voters voted people into office and asked them to inflict pain on themselves.

    My degree was in (U. S. Southern) history.

    I can’t recall such long a period of sustained crazy.
