If it Looks Like a Lame Duck and Quacks Like a Lame Duck

The cover image of this week's magazine is worth pointing out if you haven't seen it yet. It features mergansers with walking sticks and mallards with crutches waddling over the edge of a cliff. Get it? Members of the lame-duck Congress walking off the so-called fiscal cliff. It's very National Journal meets Field and Stream.

For subscribers there's a whole field guide for what to expect after the November elections: Starting with the Players and What's at Stake, Who's in the Room Crafting the Deal, The AMT Tells You All You Need to Know About the Lame Duck. And over on the free site, you can read about How House GOP Members Are Obstinate And Proud.
