I keep hearing on the news about how "historic" this vote to raise the debt ceiling is. The only thing I can see that's historic about it is how absolutely stupid the whole thing is. There is nothing historic about raising the debt ceiling - it's been done many many times before. The only thing that makes this time any different is that there are so many idiots in Congress who were willing to hold the debt ceiling ransom in order to get the cuts they wanted, and keep the President from raising taxes. This is stupid politics at its worst - a waste of the nation's time and energy. The only good thing about this bill is that it keeps this stupid debate from happening again until after the election - maybe by then people will realize how stupid the Tea Party Republicans are and kick their asses out on the street.
