OMG. S&P downgrades U.S. to AA+!

Wow. Never thought I'd live to see the day. This is so depressing, I think I'm going to go out soon and do some retail therapy- i.e., buy more lipgloss. From Lola. The pyschedelic, uber shimmery, over-the-top frosty ones. Well, thanks to the White House, the Congress, and every a-hole politician in between:
U.S. Treasuries, once undisputedly seen as the safest investment in the world, are now rated lower than bonds issued by countries such as the UK, Germany, France or Canada.
That is from an article in Yahoo news earlier, now quoted by Hot Air. This never happened under George W. Bush.

Just sayin'.
