At least one person finds some humor in this debt mess. Arab-American comedian Remy Munasif has done a catchy viral rap video about it for the libertarian Reason.tv site (“$14 trillion in debt, but, yo, we ain’t got no qualms.

Meanwhile, Time blogger Alex Altman notes the challenge for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, in getting the “hell no” caucus, including Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, to say “yes” to something. “The debt-limit debate is the showdown for which the tea party has been girding all along, the perfect forum for a principled stand,” Altman writes.
