Regardless of how we got here, the shutdown of 2013 is upon us. Republicans should not blink now. Using the budget to try to stop an unpopular, destructive, disorganized, partisan law is no vice. Yes, it would be preferable not to be in this position. But there is still an important point to be made and some good that can be done.Even though Democrats and many in the mainstream media would have people believe that the shutdown was caused by Republicans' anarchic insanity or psychotic compulsion, Republicans stand ready to fund 99 percent of the government. They also have reasonably offered to negotiate the future of the train wreck that is Obamacare.
