So, what did all the crazy hostage-taking politics of the last few weeks produce? According to Standard and Poors, the answer is: $24 billion in lost economic activity . For those of you keeping score, that’s a sum greater than the entire annual North Carolina General Fund budget.
But, at least, the freak show wasn’t a total loss. The new leader of American conservatism, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, bragged in a media interview  that he had added two million names to the fundraising list for a right-wing PAC.
