The Death of Political Discourse in America

Just had a well-educated Republican friend make the following statements (paraphrased):

1) I concede that there’s no way to use the debt ceiling to defund Obamacare nevertheless I insist it be done;

2) Unless Obama accedes to our demands 100%, we Republicans must force a government shutdown;

3) This shutdown will be the Democrats’ fault; and

4) I don’t think compromise is a dirty word

And then my head exploded.
