Why we had to go over the cliff

It’s really quite simple and I wish everybody had not been pretending otherwise.  Oh, and by the way, we went “over the cliff” yesterday and somehow the world did not fall apart.  Worst political metaphor ever?

I’m not going to put this all on Grover Norquist, but his recent tweet really does say all you need to know:

Quite simply, there is simply no way Republicans vote for this absolutely same deal on Dec 31, 2012.  Yes, of course that’s nuts.  Yes, it’s like worrying about how many angels on the head of a pin.  Yes, that’s life in today’s Republican party.
