Who, Me?

The old joke is that if you sit down at a poker game and can't figure out who the pigeon is in the first five minutes, it's you. Now we are getting a glimpse of the rough outlines of the Big Bailout and of course we, the average Joes and Joleens are screwed. Behind the closed doors at the White House the same guys that brought us Iraq, Katrina, torture and the most massive deficits in history are writing the recovery plan. A plan that a lot of liberal economists are extremely skeptical about its ability to do anything to solve the illiquidity problem. A plan that seems to be designed to laden the government with so much debt that a national health plan would be unattainable. Grover Norquist is aroused.

If my fellow citizens chose the senile old Republican and the extra from "Fargo" to lead this great country just because we can't stand the thought of having a black president then you deserve the consequences. Not me, but you do.
