September transforms itself into October and hesto presto the federal government closed down, or rather parts of the federal government closed down: the parks, the monuments, the beaches, the pop stand across from the White House, but not the White House itself or the Congress. The expiry of those last two branches of government, particularly the former, was what we Americans have been counting on. In the White House the chief executive officer is promising not to negotiate with the House of Representatives until it agrees to fund his legacy, Obamacare. So he has put the foreign policy of the United States in the steady hands of the KGB. He has called off his promise to bomb Syria after his secretary of state, the nugacious Mr. Jean-François Kerry, promised the bombing would be an “unbelievably small, limited kind of thing.” Then on October 3, a mentally ill woman drove her car into a White House barricade and proceeded down Pennsylvania Avenue, creating havoc until her car was surrounded and she died in a fusillade of police fire.
