The Republicans demonstrated a perfect circular firing squad

The political angling of the Republican house produced the beautiful round symmetry of a circular firing squad. Instead of taking the country hostage as they did during the debt ceiling negotiations, they blew themselves up. The perfect storm of hubris, playing with the truth, wrong-headedness, and misplaced values were too weak to coerce the president into any further negotiations. The Democrats took a page from the Republican playbook and just said “no.”

The field has now been tilted, the Democrats are running downhill and the Tea Party Republicans are in retreat.

It’s better to pick your battles than to try to win them all.
