Reading The Shutdown Tea Leaves

If Michele Bachmann is queen of the Congressional teabaggers, then Mike Pence has to be their king.  He’s a complete blockhead and ignoramus utterly incapable of saying anything that’s not a pre-digested right-wing talking point.

For these very reasons, he must be listened to:

Recent contradictory statements from lawmakers on a possible compromise on a long-term federal spending bill point to the usual political “gamesmanship,” according to Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.).
“I think it’s a lot of the typical political games that are played in Washington D.C.,” Pence said in a radio interview Friday with Sean Hannity.”  If the liberals in the senate want to play political games and shut down the government instead of making a payment on fiscal discipline, I say shut it down.”

From Pence’s lips to wingnut ears.  Prepare for shutdown!
