Dog Bites Man – Super Committee Republicans Cause Gridlock

over taxes, of course. They don’t want any new ones.

This could have been reported some months back when the Super Committee was first appointed, because gridlock was a sure thing from the beginning. As in the old joke about the poisonous spider, it’s what Republicans are; it’s what Republicans do. This is why the Super Committee, a construct of dubious constitutionality anyway, was a bad idea in the first place. This outcome was inevitable. Democrats on the committee should simply allow it to fail; consequences probably could not be worse than any deal they might be able to strike now.

I can’t wait to see Republicans take power in 2012. At that point, taxes THEY pass will become the best thing since sliced bread. Just you wait.
