#1. "Analysis: GOP policies led to fiscal cliff blowup" - House Republicans seem shocked by their party's meltdown on the so-called fiscal cliff. They shouldn't be.

The disappearing GOP keeps swiveling its head to complain about the room -- never once pausing to look dead straight ahead at the mirror.
