    This is a real cliff, and I've been mentioning it when people get jolly about the cliff.

    On the other hand, it's not something that is going to happen because Boehner couldn't get his plan B through his caucus.

    Cutting the extension off was part of plan B.

    •  Who's "jolly" about it? (0+ / 0-)

      It's an overwrought metaphor in the sense that the real damage does not all occur at once, but I don't think anyone's happy about it--people are only "jolly" about the idea that Republicans who created it may suffer the consequences along with the rest of us, which makes it a little easier to bear.
