Friday Afternoon Confessional: The debt ceiling
I confess that last night I had the following dream. I was at a conference, and after I gave a paper, two friends came in and told me that there was a deal on the debt ceiling and it was all taken care of. I pulled out my laptop to look up what the deal was, and one of the friends stayed to read over my shoulder — but I couldn’t get any website to work. Finally my friend suggested we try to find a paper. We walked out into the torrential rain and found our way to a bookstore. I couldn’t figure out where they kept their newspapers, and then it occurred to me that if it was really recent, it wouldn’t be in the paper yet anyway — so I sat down and read a graphic novel, cover to cover. After a while, my friend said he couldn’t find their papers and we should try somewhere else, but I felt like I should buy the graphic novel… and while we were in line, who should show up in the bookstore but Senator Lindsey Graham. Obviously this was perfect, as we could just ask him! But he said there were two deals, only one of which he knew the details of, and he couldn’t guarantee he’d vote for either. And then I woke up.
So yeah, I confess not only that I had a dream about the debt ceiling, but that it featured Lindsey Graham.
