T minus 4 days until our know nothing, do nothing Congress works America onto the third world nation list...
A senior White House yeshole was apparently feeling froggy earlier this week, going out just far enough on a limb to say there's only a "50/50" chance of reaching some kind of deal to resolve the impending debt crisis.
A 50/50 shot? Coin flip odds? Well, thanks a lot, pal. This person must have just finished the latest government yeshole seminar. You can tell their calling card a mile away- the dumber or more generically pointless the statement, the less the likelihood you will have a name attached to the yeshole.
This idiot's odds are 50/50, I got no idea what Vegas odds are, but with zero chance of anything resembling competence from our government, in just five days' time, I believe there is a 100 percent chance we're pretty much fucked...
On the plus side, the good folks at CNN, when they aren't breathlessly waiting on some Rebecca Black news/rumors/poorly autotuned music to tackle, are at least paying a bit of attention, as they posted a blog post asking the question on everyone's lips (at least when the fit really hits the shan): Can eating dog be done humanely?
You thought it was going to be a long summer? Wait until you and your family are sitting down to carve the Christmas spaniel, thanks to Barry O, Captain Spray Tan, and the rest of government as usual.
