Something to squawk about

Washington has many lazy habits, and one of the worst is a reflexive tendency to see equivalence where none exists. Hence the nonsense, being peddled by politicians and commentators who should know better, that “both sides” are equally at fault in the deadlocked talks over the debt ceiling. In this piece columnist Eugene Robinson sheds light on both sides of the debt-ceiling fight, and points out the truth about how the Democrats have made it clear they are open to a compromise deal on budget cuts and revenue increases, while the Republicans have made it equally clear they are not.
