Proof of the Pudding in the eating.
The debt ceiling deal is disgusting. It's a total capitulation by Democrats to our Galtian Overlords. That Tea Partiers don't like it because it doesn't compel the immediate collapse of the global economy is not reassuring.

The only thing that would justify this glop is if it results in unemployment dropping to under 7%, a balanced budget (its supposed goal), and a noticeably strengthening economy some 15 months down the pike. If that happens, I'll apologize to all concerned. I expect unemployment to breach 12% because of this deal along with a tanking economy that will make us nostalgic for 1931.
`What did they live on?' said Alice, who always took a great interest in questions of eating and drinking.
`They lived on treacle,' said the Dormouse, after thinking a minute or two.
`They couldn't have done that, you know,' Alice gently remarked; `they'd have been ill.'
`So they were,' said the Dormouse; `VERY ill.' ~ Alice at the Mad Tea Party
Cast Obama as Alice and Harry Reid as the Dormouse.
To finish cast, McConnell is the March Hare and Boehner is, of course, the Mad Hatter.
