The bill, which would fund the government through mid-January and increase the debt ceiling through early February, will now move on to the House, which is expected to vote tonight. Harry Reid being Harry Reid: Let’s be honest: this was pain inflicted on our nation for no good reason, and we cannot make the same […]

‘Lowest of low': GOP Rep. Pete King says debt ceiling deal a victory for America, defeat for Ted Cruz
Does she ever! Here’s what she’s been up to today: @brikeilarcnn @MajorCBS he is the Carlos Danger of the right — Jennifer Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) October 16, 2013 Sigh. Even if she’s not actually suggesting that Ted Cruz is equivalent to a serial perv who sexts with underage girls, it’s still a ridiculous stupid thing to […]

‘Every liberal hates the disabled!’ When will Dem leaders denounce ‘Tea-tards’ hate speech at OFA rally? [pics]
When one man attended the Million Vet March with a confederate flag, the crapdog media immediately elevated him to the face of the conservative movement. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee demanded that Sen. Ted Cruz and GOP congressmen denounce the “disgusting Tea Party” act. Ahem. Behold the face of the Democrats proudly waving his disgusting “Thanks Tea-Tards” […]

Shut up! Olivia Wilde’s latest O-care propaganda claims ‘you can sign up for health care online in 10 minutes’
Shut. Up. No, really. Shut up.
Ah, Twitter … bringing people together. “Twilight” actress Rachelle Lefevre, who is Canadian, recently shared her disgust with the U.S. government shutdown: This ignorance of this tweet… I don't know whether to laugh or cry. She's slightly misinformed. @RachelleLefevre pic.twitter.com/p6E3fjQrYh — emily † ♡ (@eaanderson8) October 8, 2013 She also retweeted a link to a […]
No kidding. President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have made it quite clear to Americans that they’re not interested in negotiating with Republicans. At all. But WaPo’s Greg Sargent insists we just heard them wrong: The claim Ds "will not negotiate" is a lie. The argument is over what *conditions* negotiations should take […]
Oh, Ms. Brazile. That is just precious! really @donnabrazile you're just embarrassing yourself. POTUS has said over and over he refuses to negotiate. @SpeakerBoehner — mechanical kitteh (@sttyerase) October 6, 2013 Seriously. This is beyond just silly spin now. It’s super embarrassing. Ms. Brazile was tweeting during the Sunday shows this morning, but two tweets […]
Another social media win! Last year, “just bloggers” and citizens scored a win when pushing back against Sen. Reid’s absurd claim that some guy told some girl who told him that someone said Romney didn’t pay his taxes. Now citizens are winning with pushback against the Obama administration’s petty barricades at memorials and the like. […]
Actress, Obama supporter and Bill Clinton fan Olivia Wilde wants to remind her followers that obsessing over Miley Cyrus did not avert a government shutdown, or something: Point is puritanical judgement never got us anywhere.

Time to get a new script.
Chuck Todd spins, you decide.
The above photo was taken at Kansas City International while people awaited the return of veterans from their “Barry-cade” crossing trip to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

It’s come to this
Disgusting but true. From the Washington Examiner: At the World War II Memorial on The Mall in Washington, where veterans have been staging protests to keep it open, Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering reports that at least seven officials were dispatched Wednesday morning to set up a ring of barricades to block tourists from the memorial. That is two […]
Singer John Ondrasik is rightly disgusted with the Democrats for spitefully attempting to block our nation’s heroes from entering the World War II memorial. Isn’t it about time our petulant government got a taste of its own medicine? If only we could barricade the gov't. #54F — John Ondrasik (@johnondrasik) October 2, 2013 From his […]
The National Park Service closed the Vietnam Memorial yesterday as a result of the federal government shutdown, but World War II veterans bypassed the barricades this afternoon.

And there it is. Those barricades are Barry-cades.
While the House was debating a bill this afternoon to provide funds for veterans’ benefits, including disability payments, the GI Bill and VA home loans, the Senate was getting packed up and ready to head home, having adjourned for the day. That means the government shutdown will continue for at least a second day, but it […]
Foiled again! The office of first lady Michelle Obama has joined a host of federal entities tweeting about how they won’t be tweeting during #ShutNado.

Dark days are upon us now. How will we survive Twitter without the federal government? Shouldn't government twitter accounts just go silent instead of repeatedly tweeting they cannot tweet? […]
Your government at work!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, shows once again that he’d rather shut down the government than delay implementation of Obamacare. The ping pong continues here in Congress. The Senate has just rejected the latest House bill … again #shutdown — Katy Watson (@katywatson) October 1, 2013 The senate democrats have once again voted to […]
Before we talk treason, it’s important to remember that Michael Moore declared Bradley Manning’s status an official “hero” the moment he pleaded guilty to leaking piles of classified documents to WikiLeaks. So, assuming that President Obama had the constitutional power to just shut down the government at will, would the GOP accuse him of treason? The real […]
That’s our Sally! Harry Reid’s been leading the charge to shut down the government, yet he continues to insist that the culpability lies with the “anarchists” in the GOP. Sally Kohn’s taking the delusion a step further: Those who are so cavalier about shutting down our government are welcome to move to Somalia. — Sally […]

It’s on you, Sen. Reid.
Ha! While a “tippy-top” Dem official is spewing violent shutdown rhetoric about how it is time to “punch the bully in his nose” a Washington, D.C.-area store is cashing in on the looming potential shutdown. What time is it? Miller time! Sounds like a good plan. RT @samsteinhp: DC stores already advertising for a shutdown […]

Cue Harry Reid shouting: “Traitors! Anarchists!”
It’s time for the president to own it all.
With over 60 senators having voted in the affirmative on cloture, Harry Reid only needed a simple majority to remove the language defunding Obamacare from the continuing resolution and pass the spending bill. Now the Senate version must be reconciled with the House version. Twitchy will update this story as more information becomes available.
Senate cloture vote passes, ending debate on government funding bill. — CNBC's Politics Team (@CNBCPolitics) September 27, 2013 There were many Republicans in the Senate who voted “yes” on the continuing resolution, which is essentially a vote against defunding Obamacare. Exceeding 60 votes means there will be no more debate on the spending bill. Having […]
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is really interested in Sen. Ted Cruz’s insurance plan, even more than Harry Reid was obsessed with looking into Mitt Romney’s tax returns. Near the end of Cruz’s 21-hour filibuster on Wednesday, Durbin actually seemed offended that Cruz had chosen not to partake of the congressional health plan, telling Cruz, “you […]
This afternoon, after putting an end to Sen. Ted Cruz’s 21-hour speech about the dangers of Obamacare, Sen. Harry Reid coldly dismissed Cruz’s efforts as “a waste of time.” Not to be out-douched, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee vomited up this piece of garbage: RETWEET: Let Ted Cruz know that all his grandstanding is worthless. […]
Why would they do that?
Absolutely epic. Thanks to Majority Leader Harry Reid, Sen. Ted Cruz was forced to prematurely conclude his remarks on Obamacare. But his magnificent work was done.
