Steyn Sounds Less Than Confident On Debt Talks. Wonder Why.

Mark Steyn really tries to put a positive spin on the debt negotiations, but I think some of his private opinion may be creeping through his journalistic detachment:

Nothing good is going to come from these ludicrously protracted negotiations over laughably meaningless accounting sleights-of-hand scheduled to kick in circa 2020. All the charade does is confirm to prudent analysts around the world that the depraved ruling class of the United States cannot self-correct, and, indeed, has no desire to.

If Nikki represents reality, then Mike is our government, desperately seeking an increase on the credit limit. In Swingers, Mike ended up with a girl. Mike was golden. He was money. In reality, some fools deny gold is money. Our task is to make sure those fools increase their distance from levers of power, where foolishness becomes threatening.
