I went away for the weekend to a place without Internet access, thinking *possibly* things would be better. So, there was no grand deal reached, but as you know the Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, who get more play as friends by the media than Obama and Boehner (but only by a slim margin), have taken center stage.
Question is, will the House take this bitter pill? Politico does a great job laying out the big three scenarios for us, complete with pros and cons.
Interestingly enough, Boehner won't let us know where he lies, House Tea Partiers are unable to say how they will vote, and Cruz, Palin, and Lee rallied supporters on the mall to point out the hypocrisy in spending federal dollars to keep Vets out of the monuments.
