This is what it looks like when an entire political party becomes absolutely psychotic. The Democrats now respond to virtually every news event by trying to work it into their grand sequestration passion play – an overwrought dramatic production in which a tiny reduction in the rate of government growth becomes magically responsible for everything wrong with the world.

Ancient dinosaurs who have squatted in safe House and Senate seats for decades are thus reduced to squalling children, hoping that if they keep screaming long and loud enough, an exasperated public will finally give in and admit there’s no way to cut $45 billion out of $3.7 trillion in government spending without jeopardizing life as we know it.
