i find myself in the odd position of hoping that the super-GOPers stick with grover norquist and hold the line on their crazy "no tax increases to rich people under any circumstances" position. as i've mentioned before, i want the super-committee to fail. if the GOP starts compromising, that will mean the draconian cuts the super-democrats have already put on the table might actually happen. but the most plausible path to super-failure is if the republican members continue to be total assholes and maintain their #1 fealty to grover and his rich patrons. so right now at least, that's what i want to happen.
