Mike Pence had a moment of honesty on the House floor a bit earlier today.

He attempted to blame Democrats for the impending government shutdown, and then said: "Then I say: Shut it down. And I'm certain the American people are going to know who to blame."

That's right, we will. Liberal or not, we know who to blame. Republicans have control of this House of Representatives. They have filibuster control in the Senate. They're holding the budget hostage to ideological issues like abortion and the EPA, neither of which has a single thing to do with the troops. So yes, we know who to blame. Especially when they've been out exhorting crowds to "Shut It Down!"

The TeaBirchers and the Republican Party, who are now one and the same.
