False premise from the get go!
Detracts from an otherwise well written and informative piece.

I could insert that this is no surprise because the author is a WOMAN but that would also show a preconceived notion on my part, so I won’t.

Great!! We'll be outta this mess in no time.

Unless you wanted the shutdown to wander on into the land of ad infinitum, it needed to stop and apparently the boys, though dressed nicely in their Brooks Brothers suits and silk ties wouldn't stop bumping chests, clenching their jaws & fists and yelling "yeah well, you're nothing but a bunch of anarchist suicide bombers" to the opposing teams delightful response rendition of ------> Amazing Grace.
And if you think DC needs a kicker? Hire Chris Christie I guess in 2016. He can kick a field goal from the 50 yard line using people as a football.

The article you cited was about the emergence of female leadership and its possible future roles in government while using the broad brush on past male leadership.(tsk, tsk, tsk.) While mildly humorous and entertaining, it did nothing to gain my respect for the author.

It also didn’t refute my opinion about McCain and Pryor.
These guys need to regain the female vote and what a better opportunity.
I think my cocksure position is cocksure!

Call me biased, I am.
Also call me cynical.

We probably have more in common than not.
I say we search for that.

Why are you asking Ted Cruz, he didn't shut down the government. That would be the majority in the Senate that refused to act on any compromise bills the House was sending over to fully fund the government, with only obamacare exceptions.
Had the shutdown succeeded in defunding Obamacare, you'd be tripping over your own feet to plant a stone enrcrusted crown on the head of Ted Cruz.
Headlines around the country proclaiming:

"CRUZ SHUTDOWN, SHUTS DOWN OBAMACARE!
With a beaming new new face of the entire republican party, Tea Party negotiator extraordinaire, Ted Cruz, has taken Washington, DC by storm and done what conventional republicans have been unable to. He has singlehandely and in the remarkably brave Tiananmen Square fashion, brought Obamacare, the POTUS and democrats to their knees.........."

But because the shutdown failed, you're tripping over you own feet to distance yourself from it.-lol- You can't fool me, bobin. I've got a great view from up here on the turnip truck.

It's too soon to tell if we have more in common or not but in the game of "which zebra are you?" I wouldn't be any of them. I'd be outside the frame......the drooling lion off to the side deciding which one of those striped things posing for animal crackers, I wanted for lunch.

There was never any real hope of it happening.
That fact was established before Cruz took the stage.

Why does everyone keep chanting this?

Cruz is spotlighting another issue, one that has long been forgotten.

Too bad that wasn't a lead headline and story but nooooooo, a bunch of yahoos opted instead for a 24 billion dollar shutdown mistakenly thinking Obama was ever going to yell 'uncle.
Better that 24 billion than to fund the $2.7 trillion obamacare fiasco. It's just too bad that we have 25 Republican lite Senators that opted for the $2.7 trillion spending option.

I wonder what's included in that $24 billion, the additional costs needed to shut down open air memorials, the additional costs to shut down locations that are privately funded, Congressional and administration pay, the double dip pay for both employee furloughs and unemployment, the cost to pay benefits to late Senator Lautenberg's widow (who is worth at least 60 million $$$), the costs to pay death benefits to soldier's widows and families, military wages, etc. If the numbers come from this administration, you know they've been greatly inflated, because Congress and the pResident only kicked the can down the road for a few months, and may have to go through this again, in an election year.

It didn't surprise me one bit when the surrender wing of the Republican Party used the administration's figures, without question, as a way to show that the pResident's shutdown was a bad thing.

Yay!
The Tea Party showed the American voters that they were willing to go to the mat for the taxpayer, and tried to cut excessive government spending, and obamacare. It also showed that the old guard, big government type Republicants couldn't be counted on.

WHY you keep going back to McCain is truly unbelieveable to me. This was a Tea Party idea, a Tea Party shindig, A Tea Party mission and if you needed McCain et al to successfully pull it off, either you should have gotten his support beforehand or pulled the plug on it until you had enough troops of your own.

He and 24 others told you "NO" and at the risk of beating to death an old line, what part of "NO" did the Tea Party not understand? And to top it off, YOU can't stand McCain anyway but yet you want his support. Do you not get how bizarre that is?

"Hey, Mclame, you RINO piece of dog poo- stick with us and win can win this, okay?"

Yeah, there's a plan.

The Tea Party put on a school play about a civil revolt and Ted Cruz played the part Jefferson Davis. Skip the school plays. Go do it the old fashioned way, win yourselves some national elections and wait until you're handed the reins.

And look here:

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Now that the government shutdown is over, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) plans to read the Affordable Care Act, he told reporters today.

“It’s definitely been on my must-read list for a while now,” Sen. Cruz said of the law often referred to as Obamacare.“Things have just been so hectic around here lately, I couldn’t get to it.”

The Texas Senator said that he started reading the law this morning and observed,“So far, it’s pretty dry.”

“It’s not a page-turner, that’s for sure,” he said.“But it’s caused so much controversy, it must have some pretty juicy stuff in it. I’ll keep reading it and see what I find.”

Sen. Cruz said that when he finishes reading the Affordable Care Act, he plans to read the United States Constitution.

“People kept bringing it up the last few weeks,” he said.“So I’m kind of curious to see what all the fuss is about.”

McCain wanted to surrender quickly on obamacare so he could move on to his next act to royally screw Republicans and the USA... lead the push for AMNESTY for illegals, WITHOUT first, or ever, securing our borders.

It's only a matter of time before John-Boy pulls a Charlie Crist.

A $17 trillion national debt with no decrease in spending, obamacare, amnesty, unwilling to stand up for the Constitution, support for obama policies while stabbing voters and the Tea Party that represents their wishes in the back... just how long are you going to support the old guard Republican Party?

Been 'forgotten' since 1867 or so, eh?

The federal government may be big and bloated, and ineffective, and wasteful, and corrupt - but why call us the United States, if we don't have a Federal (uniting) Government?

Are you secesh or something?

Have at it if so....good luck!

The squawk on the street is that individual states should have more of a say aside from Big Brother. The kids are all grown up. Their starting to flex their little muscles. Sure they'll get spanked but you know how kids are when they put their mind to something. Especially when you factor in that damn peer pressure thingy.
