The scenario you reference - Democrats shutting down the government - is indeed mythical. Mythical means imaginary or fictitious, and that's exactly what your scenario is. It's the GOP who is threatening to shut down the government, and if it happens it's because that's what the GOP wants.<quoted text>
I was very serious, about a real-life scenario, just because you deny it does not make it "mythical".
There's no logical, rational way to deny this fact. Everyone acknowledges it's true. House GOP members are "giddy" about the idea. Members of the GOP are saying it's true. To deny it is to believe myth over reality.
