Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Should Be An Interesting Week

Thursday is Defaultaggedon.  My guess is that they don't allow it to happen, but my guess when it comes to the Crazy Caucus is pretty shaky.

If I had to guess, I'd say we temporarily enter default on Thursday and Friday, the markets tank, we tip into a recession, but they raise the debt ceiling on Friday night.

And the Republicans still retain the House in 2014, because people are stupid.
