If the Republican Party were a normal party, it would take advantage of this amazing moment. It is being offered the deal of the century: trillions of dollars in spending cuts in exchange for a few hundred million dollars of revenue increases.

Casey Anthony has been found not guilty of murdering her daughter Caylee Anthony.
The seven women and five men of the Florida jury deliberated for more than 10 hours and returned guilty charges of providing false information to law enforcement officials, but found the 25-year-old not guilty of manslaughter or murder.
She was acquitted of the first three charges: murder in the first degree, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child. But she was convicted of the four counts of providing false information to law enforcement officials.
“While we’re happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case,” Jose Baez, her defense attorney, said at a press conference.
After this nothing surprises me anymore.
