Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie is warning that sequestration “will undermine our capacity for readiness at Pearl Harbor.”
Um, Neil, we’re friends with Japan now.
Look, some people will miss getting paid for one day of work a week for two or three weeks. Some people will wait in line longer at the airport, which we’re all used to anyway. By March 27, they’ll figure out the sequester or the government will shut down. And even if the government shuts down, how long do you think that will last?
The sequester is embarrassingly stupid, but it’s really a big yawn, a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing.
