You know when your toddler throws a temper tantrum because you told him or her that they cannot have something they want, like a toy or something random in the super market? And then there are times when they just freak out for no fucking reason discernible to any thinking rational person? Nothing calms them. They don’t know what they want. They want something, and they are furious about not getting it, they just don’t know what it is.
Obviously, Republicans are acting like petulant children having a temper tantrum. That is not in dispute by anyone with an IQ above 5. But I thought it was because we Democrats and the President told the Republicans they could not have something they really really wanted. But now…
A Republican congressman said Wednesday that his party has “to get something out of” the shutdown fight. He just doesn’t know what.
“We’re not going to be disrespected,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) told the Washington Examiner. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”
You will be disrespected. You will get nothing. You will be destroyed.
