I much prefer Bobfr’s caption:

“Gentlemen, yes I know, they’re dumber than rocks but they are Americans, too, so as we vaporize their deficit bulls*^t with Section 4 of the 14th Amendment and display for the American people just how lame, cruel and mind bogglingly dumb their little brinksmanship stunt is, be generous of spirit as we drape their Republican coffin with Old Glory, and bury their stain on 6 Nov 2012. Thank you and have a good day.”
