When deficits matter

If we let this debt linger, it will cripple our efforts to recruit great candidates for the next election and begin our drive to win the one additional seat we need to regain the Senate majority. Sen. Elizabeth Dole NC

Apparently not all debts are considered equal.

While the national debt is, at least according to VP Richard (Reagan proved deficits don’t matter) Cheney, not a cause for concern, the debt of the Republican National Committe is apparently a serious concern.

Won't a lingering national debt cripple our efforts to make this country a better place for our children? I guess not if the children in question have parents that are Senators.

Wouldn't it be funny to see the Republicans erase their debt and win back control of Congress just in time to discover that deficits do matter.

The more I watch this game the more I see political office as a game of Russian Roulette. Who would want to be in charge when the sh!t really hits the fan?

What would you call this:

"Wouldn't it be funny to see the Republicans erase their debt and win back control of Congress just in time to discover that deficits do matter."

Schadenfreudian hope?

In any event, we share the same healthy amount of it.

If we can't find something to laugh at while contemplating this mess, it is going to get very depressing.
