Raise your hand if you are sick of the “Fiscal Cliff”. Okay, let me count … 1 …. 2 … OK, there are a lot of you. I guess that I shouldn’t write about the Fiscal Cliff then. You’re back at work on 2 January like I am and we have a lot of stuff to do, right?
So, how about that House vote that … no, wait, I mean how about them Vikings, get to play the Packers at Lambeau! AP is just on fire, I’ll bet they have a chance. Anything to blur away the early hours of the first day back into the swing of things and avoid talking about Congress (the logical antonym of “progress”).
Sorry, folks. I have to. The House vote has not yet taken place as I write this, but the story is probably already written. We waited all day for this to com e to a vote because it could not be voted on until it was sure it would pass. Negotiations went on all day amounted to a lot of nothing in the end. Or did they? Something is up, I am sure. Let’s think this through.
