Talk about strange things happening: Up in Washington two tribes of politicians have been pummeling each other night and day over who deserve the blame for shutting down the government.
 
Then, unexpectedly, one tribe changed directions.
 
First the House Republicans voted to fund national parks and monuments, then they voted to fund part of the Department of Veterans Affairs, then operations for the District of Columbia, then cancer research at the National Institute of Health.
 
Which all sounded reasonable.  
 
If the Montagues and Capulets in Washington couldn’t agree on funding the whole federal government – why not fund the parts they do agree on?
 
There was a brief glimmer of hope until the Chief of the Senate Democratic tribe declared, That’s a wacky idea.
 
Who’d have expected it?
 
One tribe says, ‘Let’s fund the Department of Veterans Affairs and cancer research – we all agree that’s good work – and the other tribe says, No way – that’s a crazy idea.
 
It’s sort of leaves you scratching your head.

RUSH LIMBAUGH + SEAN HANNITY
Will Sean ever break the record of Rush?
Rush record=over 10,000 lies in 4000 hours.
Rush said, few years ago, “that Media Watch Group FAIR, edited 4,000 hours of my transcripts
and found 45 little errors”.
I got the study from FAIR. 45? He averaged over 2 lies per hour.
Will Sean break that record?
