If you're thinking that by now surely the right's learned something from its shutdown debacle - not. Thus we have Heritage Foundation head Jim DeMint's WSJ piece explaining that opposing the America-destroying ObamaCare is "a reasonable and necessary fight" he will keep fighting, and Fox' Hannity echoing him with lies and half-truths, and rabid Tea Partiers blasting John Boehner on Facebook for being a "caving big government Marxist," "f#@kheaded Constitution-shredding turncoat," and "Benghazi-denying rino," our favorite.
