The reaction to the downgrade here in Idaho has been…underwhelming, I guess. Nobody thinks it’s a good thing, of course, but life is going on. And, of course, this is a deeply Republican state, so the “evil Republicans” meme isn’t flying at all.

I have started laying in the supply of raspberries, so no need to bring those. I think we’re fresh out of wafers, though, unless you count Triscuits.

Given how much huffing and puffing Andrew Sullivan did about being the apotheosis of gay-conservative-ness, I’m not entirely sure I blame them, though there’s plenty of confirmation bias in operation, too.

Julie:
If I can smuggle in enough raspberries and wafers along with the Laphroaig, we can live on peaches melba (and be drunk enough not to think of the missing nutrients). You can probably imagine how the news of the S&P downgrade, predictable though it was, has hit New York, where we care very much indeed about such things.

It’s going to be awesome! Bring the Laphroaig!

This is completely unfair, but so are a lot of things.

It does not help much that two of the leading contenders for the GOP presidential nomination (Perry and Bachmann) are anti-gay. Being a libertarian means not having to care… as much.

I think getting through the Defaultalypse will require just a heightened use of the resources I’m already using to get through all the leaps and turns leftists are already doing to avoid acknowledging that the Obama administration is screwing up the economy. It’s hard to wash down one’s (1) Aleve or oxygenate one’s (2) Laphroaig without clean water, so I may start laying in more (3) bleach than usual, just in case city systems break down (or are intentionally screwed up to make a union point, as they were during the Snowpocalypse at the end of December). I have my (4) volumes of classical Japanese poetry to remind me that there’s beauty to be had even in times of social instability. And if things get really bad, I’m more likely to go in search of your family compound than you are to want to come to New York. :)

Personally, I’m betting more on Fahrenheit 451: omnipresent surveillance, “justice” cynically visited for show on people who’ve committed no crimes, and our pattern of not dealing well with our actual enemies coming back to bite us in the end. Can’t wait!

And which dystopian novel do you most think the aftermath of the Defaultalypse will resemble? Personally, I’m betting on I Am Legend, only with senior citizens instead of virus-infested crazies. Someday I will find your fortified bunker, and together we will find a cure!
