Political discussion on a gaming forum @ 11:53 am

>>>>Would it be appropriate to say that in the current standoff Boehner is Gestahl, Cruz is Kefka, the three branches of government are the Statues, and Republican success in ransoming the budget would be pushing the Statues?

>>>No. Kefka actually had a plan. And power. Pushing the statues would be going over the debt limit.

>>Would that make the middle class General Leo?

>Let's see, misguided and fighting for the wrong side, but generally good and noble underneath it all, and ultimately will be a tragic casualty of this ugly conflict...
>Oh crap.
