Are You Ready for a Shutdown?

Writing just this morning about defunding ObamaCare, which I'm all for in theory, I argued, "Don’t talk to me about a government shutdown. The Democrats are begging for the GOP to give them one, and not because the Democrats are naifs."

Then this showed up in my inbox from Rasmussen.


I'm not there yet -- one poll with a bare majority does not make a trend -- but I'm finally seeing an opening. We just have to trust the GOP not to mess up, and not to get played.

Those are two Jupiter-sized ifs.
