Debt ceiling debacle. The debates and arguments seem endless. Descriptors such as "toe to toe" and "mano to mano" fly through the air. It's endless combat without any possible positive outcomes. It's a crowded arena. The public looks on with both thrill and horror. They don't want to watch, but they're captivated. The want a winner but for whom should they cheer? The fight will be to the death, but whose? Sensational theatre at its finest.
