Did I miss the lingering effects of the supposedly disastrous-for-Republicans government shutdown, which was the obvious motivation of Paul Ryan's November 19, 2013 pre-budget-negotiation-guarantee that, and I quote, “We will keep the government funding at the current level if need be.” Atta boy Paul, that's a tough negotiating position...not!

Katniss Everdeen met some good folks in the fictitious Capitol City as a Hunger Games-to-the-death participant. And there are good people in America's all-too-real capitol city of Washington.

On today's sesquicentennial of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and before Friday's 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK, Americans see their respective legacies betrayed by (mostly northern) liberal Democrats waging war against what Camelot's Arthur and our Founding Fathers stood for.
