I’ve been on vacation and most of the news I’ve gotten has been from the USA Today shoved under my door, but it looks like Schaivo 2013, the Sequestering, is going to happen. I snapped this shot going through US Customs on a normal day. I can only imagine the hours it will take to go through that line after a few agents are furloughed. The notion that there’s some “opportunity” in Republicans taking the heat for making airports even more of a nightmare just shows that Eric Cantor is a shorter, less charming version of Newt Gingrich.
Speaking of USA Today, the last issue I saw portrayed Obama as the guy out trying to get the sequester stopped, the nebulous “Congress” as the bad guy (the story pointed out that Congress would keep getting their paychecks no matter what happened, even as their staff had to be laid off). It would be better if the “Republican Congress” was the bad guy, but even USA Today is smart enough to ignore Cantor’s “#Obamaquester” stupidity. Only the DC media is dumb enough to expect that Obama will don his white robe, climb onto Shadowfax, ride up Capitol Hill and force Congress to pass a bill.
