George Zornick has a good post at thenation.com about the people who are bent upon bringing on national economic default. It, in essence, the same crowd responsible for this week’s abominable North Carolina legislative session.
He quotes the the Business Secretary in the coalition British government led by Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron as follows:
“The irony of the situation at the moment, with markets opening tomorrow morning, is that the biggest threat to the world financial system comes from a few right-wing nutters in the American Congress rather than the eurozone.”
Right-wing nutters? We may have found a new catchphrase.
