To cleanse the palate, via Ace, what better way to illustrate the Republican master “strategy” to defund Obama’s amnesty than with a clip of a guy jumping out of a plane and promptly having a seizure in mid-air? It’s an almost perfect analogy. In both cases, you’ve got people voluntarily placing themselves in high-stakes, dangerously risky situations and then having their brains go completely haywire. The only difference in the GOP’s case is that the “seizure,” i.e. the standoff between the House and Senate and ensuing paralysis, was foreseeable. Imagine going skydiving when you fully expect to spazz out halfway down. Good work as usual, Boehner and McConnell.

Exit question: Who’s pulling the ripcord on the poor guy’s behalf in this analogy? Nancy Pelosi, right?
