"The Nobel Prize for chemistry was announced this week. It was awarded to Senator Ted Cruz for mixing up that batch of Kool-Aid that the Republicans seem to be drinking on Capitol Hill."
Nancy Pelosi poster: never shut down the government
"People are actually getting very pissed off at this government shutdown. But Republicans say,'Remember one thing. We are standing up for an important principle…and as soon as we figure out what it is, you will be the first to know.'"
"[Michelle Bachmann] is a true conservative with a vision of our country's future…or possibly of a coat rack or a bird. I could never tell what she was looking at."
"After the shutdown debacle, the tea party's approval rating is 23 percent. In other words, it's the first time the tea party has ever been supported by a minority."
"Some in Congress are acting like this is a big achievement. I don't think so. If you pick up a gun and don't shoot yourself in the leg with it, that's not really an achievement."
And via The Daily Show, this response to the bullshit attempt by Republicans to blame both parties for the $24 billion Republican-orchestrated shutdown:
"Both sides?!! Look, you think Obamacare is a big enough threat to this country that you need to shut down the government over it? Fine! Own it. Don’t fart and point at the dog."
