So now the Republicans are going to ignore the debt ceiling

And economic confidence is dropping like a hot rock:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans’ confidence in the economy has deteriorated more in the past week during the partial government shutdown than in any week since Lehman Brothers collapsed on Sept. 15, 2008, which triggered a global economic crisis. Gallup’s Economic Confidence Index tumbled 12 points to -34 last week, the second-largest weekly decline since Gallup began tracking economic confidence daily in January 2008.

    Well, they’re consistent.

    Climate change a problem? Heck no, say the Rethugs. The whole matter doesn’t exist – just a big liberal hoax.

    Default a problem; debt ceiling a problem? Heck no, say the Rethugs. If we pay a couple bills now and then, everything is fine.

    Personally, I’m getting interested in seeing this new game show coming to town called “Reality: Meet the Republicans”. I’m rooting for reality, myself.

    But I’ll bet the denials from the Republicans will be some real humdinger, knee slappers.

    Well yuck, yuck, yuck and fiddle dee dee.
