Down the Tubes

Over at Taki's Magazine, Jim Goad on The Retarded State of Public Debate... omg, I wish I'd written this piece myself! The idiocy of the wrangling between partisan factions over the whole debt-ceiling fiasco, each side convinced that the other side is the locus of all evil, and neither side willing to face up to the fact that this country and its entire financial and economic structure is rapidly going down the tubes...
Since there will be no happy ending, this weeks-long 'debate' boiled down to a drunken saloon argument over whether we drive into a brick wall at 85MPH or 95MPH... Everyone with two neurons to rub together seems to know in their guts that this country is in an irreversible free-fall. Though few seem willing to admit it, most probably suspect that things will get much worse and that this debt-ceiling agreement will only be a Band-Aid on a severed limb.
Preach it, brother!
