Default, Dear Brutus...

Dave Burge (aka Iowahawk) on what would have happened if the debt limit hadn't been raised.

A sample:
Beltway policy experts begin living by own wits; after 45 minutes there are no survivors.

Breadlines teeming with jobless Outreach Coordinators, Diversity Liaisons, and Sustainability Facilitators.

Cowboy poetry utterly lacking in metre.

General Motors unfairly forced to build cars that people want, for a profit.

Chaos reigns at Goldman Sachs, who no longer knows who to bribe with political donations.

No longer protected by government warning labels, massive wave of amputations from people sticking limbs into lawn mowers

At-risk Mexican drug lords forced to buy own machine guns.

Potential 5-year old terrorists head to boarding gates ungroped.

Defenseless mortgage holders forced to live in houses they can actually afford.

Without college loan program, America loses an entire generation of Marxist Dance Theorists.

Most of the humor in the debt ceiling "crisis" was unintended.

It's great to read something really funny that wasn't just a politician mouthing off, trying to be provocative or profound.
