Quick note: light posting today (I'm out of town) - back to normal on Thursday.
Here's an excellent analysis of the debt ceiling deal by Tom Ferguson on 'The Real News':
After weeks of negotiations, threats and counter threats, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced today that he and Mitch McConnell have reached a deal to end the ongoing debt ceiling standoff.
I realize that it's been pointed out before, but I want you to remember this quote on the latest developments in the hostage standoff with the Republican lunatics in Congress. Write it down somewhere and keep it for use in any argument over this nightmare you might happen to get into with your right-of-center friends, because it spells out perfectly and succinctly why the Democrats can't give in.
In this week's edition of The Daily Banter Mail Bag, Ben, Bob, and Chez discuss who will cave on the debt ceiling, our 'Living Hell' songs and Greenwald Fatigue.
