Father on Republicans’ idea of negotiation and compromise.

I’ve already put down my thoughts on the government shutdown and the GOP’s charade, but father tied up the word play in use by the Republicans nicely in this one paragraph:

The thing about “compromise” and “negotiations” as used here is the effort to create a false equivalency between GOP hostage-taking and Democratic officials who simply want to keep the government running. Of course, these notions of “compromise” are based on the absurd premise that simply funding the government is itself a concession on the part of Republicans, and Democrats now should return the favor by agreeing to their objective of undermining the health care reform law. That is neither compromise nor negotiation, that is instead extortion

Yup.
