Josh Marshall has a good point:
The saddest thing about this mess is that Republican can’t even decide why they shutdown the government and started threatening debt default? Obamacare? Or maybe now it’s the debt? Or a new supercommittee to pursue the ‘grand bargain’. Now they just want to negotiate. Which thing?
It’s kind of silly to demand a “serious conversation” if you can’t even decide what you’re going to talk about.
