Agreed, roll on Fiscal Cliff 2 in a couple of months time.
Presumably with Son of Fiscal Cliff and Revenge of the Cliff in four and six months respectively. Is it any wonder that the credit rating agencies view the US as unstable when it's this prone to almost dissapear up it's own backside only to reach a last-minute solution that has a two month lifespan.
I read that George Lucas is already planning an epic opera franchise:
A New Cliff
Cliff Strikes Back
Return of the Cliff
The Phantom Cliff
Attack of the Cliff
Revenge of the Cliff
The Cliff Wars
May the cliff be with you Condorito!
US is finished !
I don't know about finished, but I do wish the US would stop pissing on it's own cornflakes and catching everyone else in the backsplash.
#3 The founder of the British SWP (thats the Trotskyist group that thinks Cristina, George Galloway, even Castro and Chavez are too right wing!) was called Cliff =)
