There's a fascinating opinion piece over at the Times. Deju vu all over again. Or, as William Faulkner put it, "The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past." Right now the country is being held hostage by a small gang of neo-Confederates threatening to burn the place down -- this time by defaulting on our debt, which this interesting piece points out, is a very clear violation of the Constitution. But nobody, least of all the President, is point that interesting fact out. Instead, the Rebel-yelling barbarians at the gate have swaddled themselves in American flags, declaring that they're saving the Republic.
History shows otherwise. The GOP, as it's presently configured, is unfit to govern.
Take a gander.
