How to Save the Republican Brand

The New York Times ran an article the other day about the advance planning on the right that went into the government shutdown. I got a kick out of this line:

A defunding “tool kit” created in early September included talking points for the question, “What happens when you shut down the government and you are blamed for it?”

So the pamphlet in the cartoon is not much of an exaggeration.
