Swear to God I'm not making this up: When I went to load the Downfall clip (real one) on YouTube just now, a Heritage Action ad popped up.

From the Washington Post liveblog:
Eighteen Republicans vote against the Senate deal to reopen the government — including all three major potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates: Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
The others were Sens. Tom Coburn (Okla.), John Cornyn (Tex.), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Dean Heller (Nev.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Mike Lee (Utah), Jim Risch (Idaho), Pat Roberts (Kan.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Richard Shelby (Ala.), Pat Toomey (Pa.) and David Vitter (La.).
Remember, your life could always be worse — you could be living in Alabama.
(Apologies in advance to any readers who might actually be living in that misfortunate state.)
ETA: Per the Post (once again), House vote’s due around 10:30pm, after an hour of ‘floor debate’ which is being livestreamed over there.
