Shutdown threat a bad idea — again

Republicans are once again careening toward shutting down the U.S. government.

I feel a bit lame adding my voice to the mix of those decrying the insanity of this move, with GOP pollsters and Karl Rove already having led the way. You can hardly find a professional political operative who thinks this will be good for the GOP — and they’re sacrificing their professional advice on the altar of ideology. [cont.]
