Debt ceiling debacle will continue next year

After more than two weeks of political gridlock, there was finally an agreement to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling to prevent the nation from defaulting on its financial responsibilities.

These past two weeks really have proven that our political system is broken and divided. While it is good that both sides were able to come to an agreement, we may have to start this whole convoluted process again in early 2014 — a discomforting but realistic and unnerving fact.

The cast of clowns, idiots, miscreants and buffoons in Washington, D.C., may have even more surprises for us come January and February.
