The media seems to have been getting it right.
The 'two sides' are at a flat-out, nyeh-nyeh-I'm-not-listening-to-you-I'm-right-you're-wrong-I'm-big-you're-small impasse. They. Just. Don't. Want. To. Give. In.
C'mon, government people, do something. Something. Maybe like Thomas Dewey did in his 1948 presidential campaign (against Truman), 'take the high road?' Well .. then again, he did lose that election, no matter what the media thought was going to happen (and printed before it happened):
I didn't hear anybody say anything I haven't already heard for the past few weeks since the partial government shutdown began. This is extra annoying to me because I got up from a cold-and-flu-medicine-induced sleep to watch these two 'speeches' that I hope my tax dollars didn't pay for.
And I'm sick. No. Really sick. That's why I'm taking this cold-and-flu stuff.
And I still set my alarm(s) up to watch the disappointment.
So there's that.
For historical purposes (in case anyone actually reads this in the future after most people have forgotten about this whole wall-thing), there was a mention by POTUS of a 45-minute meeting tomorrow. I guess we'll have to stay tuned and see if anything comes out of that.
While I try not to discuss my political leanings via this medium, I am strongly reminded of the words of Rodney King:
Or The President ... or Jack Nicholson or whoever said it ...
