So says Dana Bash on CNN. Some arcane budget rules??

Repukes are pissing in their britches.

59 defect on Boehner.

Obama split the GOP in twain.

5. People are starting to see the light

This is why it is so infuriating watching TYT bash Obama all day on the budget "capitulation".

11. Yeah...always on non-stop repeat. That's until the info comes out a week later or a day later.
Then they're like...Oh...Oh...Oh wow! But they still don't admit they're wrong.

4. Boehner was bluffing, Reid & Obama called
Boehner was not going to do a shutdown, and Reid gave him some face-saving accounting tricks to present as cuts. And then conveniently leaked the facts just ahead of the vote as a last little "fuck you" to the orange man.

6. Bwah! It gets better! Spending actually increased
Per CBO, via Wonkette:

The deal only includes any decrease at all if you count the cost of the wars last year but not this year. Ha!

9. I wasn't joining the "chess" thing until I saw all that stuff last night.
It was a pretty surprising move by Obama and the Dems. DUers are weak man. Seriously...we really do have a brain in the office right now.
