By now we're all aware, or should be, that the imminent dangers of a debt-ceiling default are over and on top of that, the government is once again funded - but just for a little while.
Hopefully the lesson learned is that you don't hold up the entire country over Obamacare or the mad rantings of a lunatic, Ted Cruz. He's the guy who eggs you on to toss a rock, breaking a window. Then when the owner of the house comes out, he points the finger at you and says, "He did it, not me."
Rachel Maddow last night was in perhaps her finest form when she put together the piece below. These 4 minutes will fly by as only Rachel M can make them do -- and you'll see the full hypocrisy and fruitlessness of the GOP's antics.

This is what the Republicans games got for our money as well as a record low favorability rating.
I'm with the folks at Gawker, WTF is wrong with the journalists? They couldn't have given the woman some help pulling her dog out? It ended well, but they're still asshats.
Not a fan of King's, but I do admire holding a grudge against assholes. Via.
