In other news, House Republicans have apparently been whipping votes for the debt ceiling bill that has already been abandoned in the Senate and will never reach the House.

Meanwhile, the Friday vote they were whipping for has been cancelled because, as we've just established, there's no bill to vote on.

We're a little over a week away from hitting the debt ceiling while Republicans continue to violate a flock of chickens in the Benghazi coat closet.
