Thought of the Day
Well, don’t worry. It’s coming. The domestic media coverage of this story has been almost laughably fraudulent: To the court eunuchs, a failure to raise the debt ceiling by a couple of trillion would signal to the world that American government was embarrassingly dysfunctional. In reality, raising the debt ceiling by a couple of trillion without any spending cuts would confirm to the world that American government is terminally dysfunctional.
The second paragraph is the truism the left seems unwilling or unable to grasp. I have enough faith in my fellow likely voters that a large majority of them get it and a palpably petulant President Obama is not convincing enough of them that it's the evil troglodyte right that is screwing everything up. NY 26 is a little troubling though.
