And the rubes on both sides lick it up. I'm pretty sure the thing will squeak by, and each side can continue to blame the other, and keep the show running. Exciting stuff to lead into November sweeps. If it doesn't pass, Hillary is going to put a foot so far up Obama's ass that she'll be wiggling her t

Surprise due today. Also the rent.
