In case you thought Debt Ceiling Week couldn’t get any lower, a reminder from your friendly neighborhood eeyoreblogger that things can always get lower. This is the perfect ending, in fact: Now that we know the negotiations are purely political, here’s SJL accepting them on their own terms as an opportunity to grandstand in the most demagogic way possible.
