Andrew Sulliven professes his ignorance

www.AndrewSullivan.com - Daily Dish
HIS FIRST MOVE: Not too encouraging:
The Bush administration announced Wednesday that it will run out of maneuvering room to manage the government's massive borrowing needs in two weeks, putting more pressure on Congress to raise the debt ceiling when it convenes for a special post-election session.


Oh, well.
Sully should stick to talking about things he's not COMPLETELY FUCKING IGNORANT about. Anyone who's familiar with government bond auctions can tell you, the "debt ceiling" is something the Government runs across a number of times every year - regardless of wars, regardless of good times vs. bad, regardless of who's President. It's simply a function of Congress holding power over the country's "purse strings" - and Congress being the busy sort, has other things on their plate besides letting loose with the flow of funds. Net net net, this comes up every year, multiple times a year, and only when ignorant partisan shitbags lose elections does this become a partisan point of nit-pickery.

So, fuck you Sully, stick to having unprotected (bareback) gay sex - you know, something you're familiar with. Leave the economics to the big boys.
