Noonan on the shutdown

Interesting take on the government shutdown by Peggy Noonan.

Of course, one must also take into account the inherent craziness of the very concepts of "defunding" Obamacare now rather than either repealing or- better- reforming it when the GOP has the votes after the next election, on one hand, and risking default by refusing to OK an increase in the debt limit on the other.

The entire GOP agenda seems to be driven by folks with absolutely no contact with political reality, who would rather make futile gestures that hurt average Americans than a difference.
