'West Wing' Explanation Of Debt-Ceiling Politics Hard To Beat

In what may be the pithiest explanation of debt-ceiling politics ever rendered in a popular TV series (and I'm guessing probably the only one) The West Wing really nailed it.

A sample:

AIDE: So this debt-ceiling thing is routine or the end of the world?

TOBY ZIEGLER, COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: Both.

C.J. CREGG, PRESS SECRETARY: OK, That's It. Thanks everybody.
