platinum pieces were always my favorite

the more i read about the mint-our-way-out-of-debt-ceiling-crisis idea, the more fascinating i find it to be.

i realize the odds of this ever happening are pretty much nil, but i would love it if the president told the republican congressional leadership: "you had your chance, but i'm sick of this bullshit." then withdrew all of his offers to resolve the debt ceiling and just had tim geitner make a bunch of trillion dollar platinum coins.
