Inmates Running the Asylum

Or so it seems. The nutters in Congress will hold the rest of America (and the world) hostage to their Herbert Hoover brand of economics. (Remember how that worked out?) Unless the majority is willing to kowtow to every radical conservative fantasy, they will drive the country off a cliff.

A while back I saw a post that described the Democratic Party as the party of eat your vegetables and do your homework. These days I would characterize the Republicans as the party of "a massive dose of laxative followed by extended chemotherapy."

Of course, all of this Republican bashing would not be happening if the Democratic majority in the previous Congress had the guts to raise the debt ceiling when they could.


Juan Cole says it better.
