Well, it’s happening again! Yaaaaaaaay! (Or, well, NOT.)
I’m heading in to work this morning for an hour or two to conduct an “orderly shutdown” — which basically means being told I’m on-call only in the event of an ISS emergency (which I already know), and leaving out-of-office messages on my email and voicemail.
I’m not going to even bother with calling it #trumpshutdown or #schumershutdown because honestly, when this crap happens I feel like every single one of them should share the blame. This is no way to run a government.
Last I heard, the Senate was planning to vote at 11:00 Houston time today, so with any luck this furlough will be short-lived.
