The good news is that it seems like the GOP might be backing away from the idea of a government shutdown. The bad news is that they’re only not doing it so that they can default on the debt

After his big fake filibuster, Ted Cruz called into Rush Limbaugh’s show
to decry political theater and show votes! Amazing! Ted Cruz cries out against political “theater” while he’s still wiping the greasepaint off of his face after his latest performance.
On Rush’s show, Ted Cruz kept referring to his pointless speech
as “the filibuster.” Hey, if nothing that you say in 21 hours is going to be true, you might as well give the whole thing a title that’s a blatant lie as well. Cruz said he would not defend himself against those who said his speech was nothing but a PR and fundraising stunt. That’s convenient—because there is absolutely no way he can defend himself against those charges.
A top Nevada Republican says
that the 2014 election should be great for Republicans since there will be fewer of those pesky minorities and young people voting.
