On MSNBC’s Up With Chris Hayes this morning, the New England Mint debuted this deliciously self-aware two-minute commercial for a trillion-dollar tribute coin, in remembrance of no doubt our country’s foremost heated, hilarious, in-the-weeds argument over platinum-minted uber-currency. Long live the coin! source

antigovernmentextremist says: Short Form Blog. I’m disappointed. I expected so much better from you. The fact that this is even considered a viable option shows just how far off the handle America is.

» SFB says: I’m not actually in favor of the platinum coin — it’s a weird, crazy idea that deserves the eyerolls it’s getting. I mocked it two nights ago, even. But if you’re going to talk about it, at least get the semantics right. You can be critical of something without misleading people. — Ernie @ SFB
