I think the Democrats have been handling the government shutdown the right way: No negotiations with blackmailers. Go ahead, bring on the shutdown.
Of course, I'd be enjoying this "government shutdown" a lot more if it wasn't such a misnomer. What they mean by "government shutdown" is simply that they're shutting down the parts of the government I actually like. The national parks will be closed, the panda cams at the National Zoo will be turned off, NASA scientists won't be going into work. But the military-industrial complex, the CIA, the NSA, and the shady intelligence and paramilitary organizations will all hum right along without missing a beat.
