The White House and Congress remained stalled in the debt crisis Tuesday after the NFL settled. However there's no progress in the NBA lockout. Kobe Bryant is considering signing with a team in Turkey just for the pleasure of not worrying about the electricity or the currency.

White House officials were reported Tuesday privately assuring banks there will be no U.S. government debt default. They're just trying to scare the country into supporting President Obama's policies. What they didn't count on was the tune-out factor due to Armageddon fatigue.
