It looks like they didn't have quorums for the House or Senate, IMHO.
Two montth increments made no sense for plenty of reasons, but Gail Collins thinks it's cool to get smarmy about the GOP ruling class.
The Tea Party movement must take over the GOP! We're broke!

This isn’t about economics, or politics. It’s about saving the jive turkey’s face as he enters a tough re-election race.

(Since Obama's only challengers in 2012 are in the GOP debates, include him the next 15.)
It is not its intent, but Collins' column amounts to the most fierce indictment of the Republican establishment I've ever seen.
Collins asserts that "The old country club deal-making model..." is what the Democrats count upon to create bi-partisan majorities in favor of socialism.
And to annoint easily-defeatable candidates like Mitt Romney....
She exposes that liberals actually rely upon the Republican establishment to further their agenda.

As barf inducing as that is (highly) she is absolutely, 100% correct about what the GOP elite think of us. Which is why I will never, ever vote for their candidate.
Vote for the Socialist of your choice. R or D!!!

She's got a point though, the elites running the GOP or trying to play kingmaker are doing everything they can to help Willard get the nomination. And that helps the Democrats and liberals, and it helps Obama. Anybody but Willard and RuPaul can beat Obama.
Democrats know a lot of us won't vote for Willard. I think we'll find after the primaries are over that plenty of liberals were working with the elites in the GOP to keep Willard going.
