Should President Obama be willing to print a $1 trillion platinum coin if Republicans try to force America into default? Yes, absolutely.[...]
So if the 14th amendment solution — simply declaring that the debt ceiling is unconstitutional — isn’t workable, go with the coin.
This still leaves the question of whose face goes on the coin — but that’s easy: John Boehner.

But perhaps, we should have Krug and the Grey Lady snuggling on the face of the coin.
