Well, the GOP is doing its darndest to screw things up with the sequester. The current GOP leadership reminds me of the old Monty Python skit "The Upper Class Twit of the Year Contest". In that one, a group of upper class twits compete in contests like "Slamming a Car Door," "Insulting a Beggar," "Jumping over a Matchbook," and finally, "Shooting Yourself in the Head." When one them finally accomplishes the last item in this list, he is (posthumously) declared the winner. That is a contest that Cantor, Boehner, Ryan et all are perfectly suited to enter.
