The Best and Most Honest Quote About the Government Shutdown

Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN)

This is by far the best and most honest quote about the government shutdown, from Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN). From the Washington Examiner:

“We’re not going to be disrespected,” conservative Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., added. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”

The Republican party has endorsed an incredibly stupid idea that can’t work, but now they are in too deep. They can’t give up at this point because that would make them really look stupid. They now need to get something out of it.

They want to save face but Democrats have zero incentive to help them saves those faces. Every day this lasts, the worse it is for the GOP. The sillier they look, the bigger their ultimate defeat will appear.
