On that debt ceiling…

Gosh, remember last year when it was all THERE IS SO MUCH UNCERTAINTY THAT IS WHAT IS KILLING THE ECONOMY…?

And now we’re sitting around trying to figure out what the hell is going to happen by August 2nd to prevent the US from defaulting on its loans and/or stopping payment for Social Security checks, Medicare, and military wages. Well, given our priorities I’m sure we’ll devote every penny we can scrape up to paying the military first, but still, that’s a whole lot of heapin’ uncertainty, all courtesy of the Republicans.

If you wonder why they have so often have no fear of making things up and being proven utterly wrong, it’s because they know that the country suffers from ADD-induced amnesia, and that the people who are supposed to hold them accountable usually find their job a lot easier as long as they’re talking about whatever it is rightwingers want to talk about on any particular day.
