What If We Didn't Make It Us Vs. Them? Conservatives Speak Out Against The Idiotic Government Shutdown.

While you’re out there grappling with the every day realities of the government shutdown (be it closed parks or the lack of a paycheck) I hope you remember that it’s not just liberals who have had their hides chapped by this colossal cluster*ck. In fact, our collective disdain for Congress might just prove to be a unifying thing. This isn’t merely a partisan issue. Really, it’s a bureaucratic one.

Please, if you will, take a moment to read this piece from The American Conservative entitled “Republicans, Over The Cliff.”

When I think of the Republican Party, I don’t think of principled conservative legislators who are men and women of vision strategy. I think of ideologues who are prepared to wreck things to get their way. They have confused prudence — the queen of virtues, and the cardinal virtue of conservative politics — with weakness.

That’s from The. American. Conservative. So for those of you who couldn’t go to work today, I’m sorry. I hope this changes soon. But don’t paint a target on every conservative’s back. They’re not all against you.

This guy, however. I don’t know.
