Mistermix at Balloon Juice explains what the Republicans are up to:

A lot of people don’t vote because they view it as a pointless act. The more Republicans make government into a meaningless sideshow, the fewer voters will be interested in voting.

The sheer stupidity of a Republican-led Congress isn’t a bug, it’s a feature. It helps to convince younger, intelligent, uninterested non-voters—a group that would probably vote for Democrats—that their lack of interest is a rational choice.

But, you know, it’s not like we’ve got any kind of economic crisis or war going on, so we’ve got plenty of leeway to put up with crap like this.
