BUT IT MUST BE A TRICK!

Republicans have won. But can they stop there? (Ezra Klein, 7/25/11, Washington Post)

We don't yet know what the final deal to raise the debt ceiling will be. But now that Harry Reid is developing a proposal with $2.7 trillion in cuts and nothing in revenues, it's a safe bet that it won't include any tax increases. Which means that whether Republicans realize it or not, they've won. The question now is whether they can stop.

The danger is that the Right is so seduced by its own rhetoric that it can't accept total victory because Democrats have agreed to it.
