The Money Behind the Shutdown Crisis

“…Brian Walsh, a longtime Republican operative, recently noted in U.S. News and World Report that the right is now spending more money attacking Republicans than the Democrats are. ‘Money begets TV ads, which begets even more money for these groups’ personal coffers,’ he wrote. ‘Pointing fingers and attacking Republicans is apparently a very profitable fund-raising business.'”

So two things:

1. I thought we all thought of cannibalism as something that is not ideal, and;
2. Did the GOP not realize what this did in ’08 and ’12?
