GOP destruction is worse than America realizes
Please forgive me for what I'm about to do.
A few weeks ago a good friend of mine left Washington, D.C., where he'd been working as a lawyer for a few years, and returned to California, where he now practices. He's surrounded by highly educated people. And yet he wrote me this week to boast, "You know what's nice? Nobody is discussing the looming government shutdown. It's just not on anybody's radar."
If he weren't a news junky, it probably wouldn't be on his either.
