If you think Republicans didn’t get more out of the debt ceiling settlement than they originally thought they would, just take a look at the face of the “staunches of the staunch”. When Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Republican) gives out this big of a smile, accompanied with a thumbs-up, you know he just pulled off the coup of the year. And if you further question if they’re happy or not, you should know that when Grover Norquist backs the deal it has got to be the best of the best.
Never underestimate the difficulty of changing false beliefs [with] facts.
