Is Fiscal Cliff a Mere Matter of Peanuts?

You can find this quote in the Congressional Record today:

It reminds me of the ``Charlie Brown'' cartoon. How many times is Charlie Brown going to try to kick that football? Because we know every time he approaches that football it will be taken away from him. He can't do it. That is what has happened here, and we are not going to fall for that again.
Try to guess who said it. I'll even make this a multiple choice question:

  1.  Mitch McConnell, in the midst of asking where the President was in trying to reduce government spending;
  2. Harry Reid, in the midst of a lament that the Republicans never admit what taxes they would increase in one of their deals;
  3. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), quoting Rush Limbaugh on how the Democrats are making patsies of the Republican leadership
  4. Nancy Pelosi, complaining that Republicans are against the children.
The fact that I can do this suggests that this political cliche needs retirement.
