“Republicans and Democrats on the debt are like two drunks arguing over a bar bill on the Titanic”

"Congress is like 2 drunks arguing the bar bill on the Titanic” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The RMS Titanic passenger liner struck an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912.

“Concerning the current budget crisis, ‘It’s like arguing over the bar bill on the Titanic.’ ~ Mark Woods, Times-Union Columnist #quote” was posted on Twitter by Pamela Weeks on April 8, 2011. “Best commentary on the current budget crisis last night on Anderson Cooper - ‘its like arguing over the bar bill on the Titanic’” was posted on Twitter by debra morris later on April 8, 2011. “‘Republicans and Democrats bickering over the U.S. debt is like two drunks arguing over a bar bill on the Titanic’ —anonymous” was posted on Twitter by Steve Fedorko on October 24, 2011.

Wikipedia: Titanic
RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner operated by the White Star Line that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912, after striking an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making the sinking at the time the deadliest of a single ship in the West and the deadliest peacetime sinking of a superliner or cruise ship to date. With much public attention in the aftermath the disaster has since been the material of many artistic works and a founding material of the disaster film genre.

27 December 2011, The Herald-Journal (Spartanburg, SC), “The Stroller: ‘Jewel’” by Lou Parris, pg. ?:
THAT SAYS IT: Jim Conner of Landrum isn’t sure who said it, but he’s nodding in agreement: “Witnessing the Republicans and the Democrats bicker over the U.S. debt is like watching two drunks argue over a bar bill on the Titanic.”
