"Emergency legislation to scrape past an economy-rattling [but entirely imaginary] national financial default sped through the House Monday night a scant day before the deadline for action. The moment was made all the more electric by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ first appearance in Congress since being shot in the head six months earlier. ... A final Senate sign-off for the measure is virtually assured on Tuesday." (08/01/11)
