OMG. A debt deal, who could have thought

Just as we predicted: $2.5 trillion debt ceiling raise, no real spending cuts, and no real tax hikes. But the soap opera sure was fun.

Fun perhaps, but completely unnecessary. Apparently it is too much to ask that our supposed leaders act like leaders as well as adults. Or to put the interests of We The People before those of the ultra-rich and the banks.

Our fightin' politicians charge in to save the day at the last possible moment, ever aware their corporate overlords will clobber them should there be a default. (Photo. Flickr. US Army)
