It fascinates me to watch (often reluctantly) the endless parroting of Republican sound bites, talking points and blanket statements about the “dangers” of the fiscal cliff.

Senate Republicans today give a gigantic, blatant “GFY” to teachers and firefighters throughout the country today as they scuttled jobs legislation aimed at helping state and local governments avoid layoffs of teachers and firefighters.
