Your shutdown comic of the day

I know conservatives are bummed or pissed right now. Take it from us progressives, we’ve learned the hard way. You have to own all three branches of government to get anything major through. Even then it will be like herding kittens with a squirt gun. Good luck.

    Reminds me of history. Early on, Saint Reagan, despite his apologists who are still whining about his genius being hobbled by the supposedly hostile Congress and Courts, ordered that Federal civilian employees health insurance plans could not pay for abortions. Clinton reversed this order shortly after taking office (a number years after I had left the government). However, two years later, Neutered’s pet congress restored Reagan’s dictum. I have no idea if anything has changed again under the current administration. My point? Some can get their way with control of one branch (or as currently, less), however progressives do not seem to be able to without virtually complete control. “Even then it will be like herding kittens with a squirt gun. Good luck.”
