Dear Sirs and Madams,
Good job, turds. After months of wrangling over the debt ceiling, you finally got a deal done to raise it one more time. Give yourself a pat of on the back for actually getting some sort of work done....
Now you might be saying, "But wait a minute! They lowered our credit rating anyway! No fair!". I realize that as government officials, your concept of fair is juvenile at best but I assure you, this is totally fair. This same thing happens to consumers all the time: you get some credit cards, max them out, and your credit score goes down. It's maddening to think that our government can manage its finances no better than a 19 year old sorority girl.
So, think of this credit downgrade as the big talk with Dad. You're in deep shit. How are you going to fix this? What can you even do at this point?
Enjoy your weekend, asswipes. I wouldn't want to be strolling into your jobs on Monday.
