I seldom post my political feelings publicly, but in the last few days I’ve witnessed a truly remarkable situation in the U.S. House of Representatives, where a minority splinter of the representatives are working to block the “clean” continuing resolution to fund the nation’s budget. After losing the election to control the Senate, after losing the presidency (again) to Mr. Obama, and even after losing seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, a tiny few are working to block the normal operation of the federal budget by demanding an extra-legislative action to repeal a duly enacted law, a law affirmed by the Supreme Court.

That, to the best of Travis Bridgman’s memory, is what a lightning strike feels like.
