"The current episode of political theater -- the 'debt ceiling debate' -- isn’t really about whether or not the politicians will 'allow' themselves to borrow more money in your name. That’s no more in doubt than that a wino will drain that next bottle of Thunderbird ... if he can get his hands on it. ... It’s about whether or not you’ll continue to play your assigned role of 'Mr. Moneybags.' It’s about whether or not you’ll help the political class induce suspension of disbelief in its creditors. It’s about whether or not you’ll vocally and convincingly beg the political class to continue milking you, shearing you, harnessing you and driving you." (07/27/11)
