The upcoming debt ceiling bill is exactly where I expect to see the damage done. But I don't even think it will be sneaky. I think there will be some onerous amendment like a magazine ban attached to the bill, then dare the conservatives to hold the country hostage over it.
Bohener is a weak kneed Speaker, so I wouldn't be shocked to see that get by with no sunset. Disappointed, but not shocked. Angry as hell, but not shocked.
