Power! Unlimited Power!

It's been a busy day of make-beleive, going from fiat-fiat-fiat money all the way to fiat governance. Wynton Hall has the latest:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has reportedly told President Barack Obama that he would back the president overriding congressional authority and unilaterally raising the debt ceiling.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was more forceful: “I’ve made my view very clear on that subject: I would do it in a second. But I’m not the president of the United States.”

That last line has already given me several nearly-orgasmic shudders of relief, but it's not really germane to the story. The story is that the two highest-ranking Democrats in each chamber don't give a good got-dam about the rule of law, so long as the gravy trains run on time. And if that means a one-man junta? So be it.

It's time we realized there's no more gravy and the train is ready to derail.
