Crap, Dex is back on a political topic. Time to move it to Off-Route.

Or, maybe Dexie should just go visit his friend rASStic. Permanently.

Those sophisticated political scientists would thrive together and maybe save our country from ruin. Like a right-wing Menlo Park brain trust.

Yeah, that's the ticket. (no idiot font necessary)

Looks like the negative polling numbers for the GOP have had quite an effect, since they are now projecting that the budget and debt ceiling increase will be passed this weekend or early next week. Its amazing how much bad polling numbers can increase cooperation in the government!

So hopefully RMNP will be opened by next weekend.

Doesn't co-operation mean both sides, not just one? Or are you saying correlation is causation? Varying views on the dynamics of the shutdown: "The real crisis? Gerrymandering" versus "Gerrymandering Didn’t Cause the Shutdown". At least UT has shown it can avoid a deficit budget which I'm sure is helping them re-open parks in their state. Don't know what it would cost WY to re-open Yellowstone, the Tetons, J.D.R. and so on by comparison though.
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:
