Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Wither Now?

A continuing resolution would be a not-bad thing, providing it takes us past March.  But it does appear, once again, that GOP leadership gets it.  They can't keep attacking Hispanics.  And any fight over Obama's immigration reforms - especially a high profile fight like a shutdown - will hurt them.

At the moment, they have managed to corral their xenophobic wing(nuts), but we will see how long that lasts.
