Shouldn't we all drop onto fainting couches, now that the House Republican leadership has counterproposed a dead-ender of a deal? Shouldn't we at least "burst into laughter"? Or perhaps we should all schedule some cable-network time to publicly brood about how insufferably unproductive it is for House Republicans to counterpropose, well, a counterproposal.
I'm just not sure my nerves can handle this extreme turn of events: a counterproposal made to an initial proposal. My oh my I haven't encountered anything so outrageously bizarre since ... mmmm, buying a car.
