  •  Part of the reason these Teabagger-Republicans (23+ / 0-)

    in the House feel so comfortable about doing batshit crazy things is because their local media doesn't hold them accountable in any way whatsoever for their actions.

    My local right wing rag covers the districts of Teabagger congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Randy Hultgren, two of the clowns who are currenly holding the country hostage with their insane ransom demands. And this local right wing rag that's supposed to be holding them accountable has basically ignored the gov't shutdown, expect for this tiny blurb (see below) where they blame "both sides".

    Now don't get me wrong, my local right wing rag doesn't ignore politics, in fact their favorite pastime is ripping Illinois Democrats to shreds, which they do nearly every single day, including during the current Republican gov't shutdown stunt.

    That's how right wing media on the local level rolls. They endlessly bloviate about holding politicians accountable (which is code for 'Democrats'), while they completely ignore, or even worse blame 'both sides', when Republicans do batshit crazy stuff right under their nose.

    Thumbs down: To the failure to govern by our leaders in Washington, D.C. There’s enough blame to go around for both sides in this debacle. Although many politicians are using this crisis as an occasion for grandstanding and drawing attention to themselves, real people are being affected by the crisis in the form of lost wages and being told they are “nonessential.”  Even for those who have not been personally affected, the first government shutdown since the 1990s reduces the public’s faith in government.
