The one thing this debt ceiling death battle has succeeded in doing is making otherwise sane people start sounding like babbling idiots. I guess people are just starting to crack under the strain. I don’t know if it is just dawning on people or what, but electing dozens of tea baggers to Congress means that horrible things are going to happen. When you finally find out what those horrible things are going to be, you shouldn’t act shocked. This is why it was vitally important that people on the left show some unity of purpose instead of taking their ball and going home. But, when did that ever happen with a Democrat in the White House? I guess, when they tried to impeach Clinton we were united. Other than that? Never. It’s just who we are, and why we lose. Still, the magical thinking is depressing me.
