    By that I mean all of this is series of Republican inspired "crises" that are not a reflection of reality.  Its not like the bond markets are revolting, the treasury is not running out of money, interest rates are not skyrocketing.  The debt is only a problem because Republican politicians say it is, not reality.  

    The whole concept of the debt ceiling is a farcical exercise.  Its all legislative tricks to win what the Republicans cannot win in a "normal" legislative environment.  They need to manufacture a crisis to make all of their chicken little deficit warnings seem tied to reality.  But they are inventing the crisis.  Oy.  This is hard to watch.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
