Lest you retain any doubt that the shutdown of the federal government of the world’s most powerful nation is nothing but a dick-measuring contest to the GOP, witness Texas congressman Pete Sessions explaining to a Normal Sane American why the Republicans won’t allow a vote on reopening the government. “Look, we’re not French, we don’t surrender,” Sessions said.

Sessions is right: The GOP isn’t France. It’s America — starting unnecessary wars that turn into demoralizing quagmires, again and again.
