    I want cupcakes!

    No cupcake. You can have a banana or a bowl of cereal. You can't have strawberries.

    I want strawberries! And a cupcake!

    I told you you can't have strawberries. You can have a banana or a bowl of cereal. Or some grapes.

    I want strawberries!

    You can have a banana or a bowl of grapes, and one strawberry.

    I want strawberries! And maybe some grapes.

    OK, you can have some strawberries. And some grapes.

    See how it works? All you really wanted was for the kid to eat fruit, and not cupcakes. Which they did. But they only wanted what they THOUGHT they couldn't have.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Obama said he really didn't want sequestration, and wasn't going to accept anything that had it, especially if it included defense. OK, maybe some sequestration, but don't include defense.

    Honestly, the GOP is just so childlike. Poor dears. It must be horrible to be that easy to manipulate.
