I'm drawing a blank. The current Congress is a nearly-endless source of amusement -- but it's as funny as riding in a bus going over a cliff. You can laugh all the way down, but it's still going to hit.
On the other hand, how hard is it going to hit, and what is at the bottom? The Federal government has been shut down* for over three weeks and yet civilization has not fallen. Who possibly could have predicted it?
* N.B., a "shut down" fed.gov still seems to be operating at a level that George Washington or Calvin Coolidge might have recognized as a functioning Federal government. It's not like Congress has gone home and there's a stack of sign-in sheets at the abandoned border crossings.
