The debt ceiling metaphor I was looking for

Last week, I did a post comparing John Boehner with Indiana Jones pointing a bazooka at the Ark of the Covenant. In retrospect, I think the better metaphor would be the bounty hunter in Jabba's Palace using a thermal detonator as a negotiating tool. Interestingly enough, Obama's response was almost exactly the same as Jabba's -- pay the price demanded, and let the bounty hunter spend the night in the palace.
