Prepare yourselves for a shocking confession. The ogling, ooh-ing, aah-ing media in the tank for Obama? You don't say!
"Stinging pleasure."
You'll be thrilled to know that despite economic uncertainty and panic over the failed bailout, San Francisco's infamous Folsom Street Fair went off over the weekend without a hitch. Or rather, with plenty of hitches. And the whitewashers at the San Francisco Chronicle lapped it all up: S.F. kinky naked romp a spanking success They... Read More

You can pretty much write what he'll say in your sleep: Doing nothing is not an option. The costs of inaction outweigh the costs of action. Homeownership must be "preserved." "Stability" must be achieved. Americans are suffering. We need bipartisanship in this volatile time. Translation: More special-interest goodies for the next bailout bill! The AP... Read More

Since the Citizens of the World care so much about world opinion, here's a columnist for the Indepedent newspaper in Britain smacking Joe Biden upside the head.

It was just announced that the Senate bailout vote will take place on Wednesday, not later today. That's time. Time is money. Your money. Call your Senator: 202-224-3121. WWMD? What will McCain do? *** Obama will return to Washington for the vote.
They are the thugs Obama's been waiting for.
(Create your own Goon Squad Logobama here!)

"You won't believe where that $700-billion bailout figure came from." Yes, you'll believe it.
The crony pseudocapitalists at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been served federal grand jury subpoenas.

"Not debatable."
I've just given the draft bailout bill a first read (link here; there's apparently a more recent draft posted at the House Financial Services cmte website, but it's currently inaccessible). There's a lot of b.s. stuffed in it (more to come), but let's start with one section that warrants your attention-- Section 115 (c). It... Read More
Together again.
You'll note that when Newt Gingrich announced his opposition to the bailout last week, I wrote: "Couch buddies no more. For now, anyway (emphasis added)." I knew he'd be back on the sofa. So did you.

I'm giving it to McCain -- and you know I'm a tough grader on him. He was slow out of the gate -- a broken record on earmarks and spending -- but Obama failed to turn the bailout debacle against him.

My syndicated column today updates what used to be one of my favorite Aesop's fables: "The Ant and the Grasshopper." It's been revised over the years (most famously by Jim Quinn in the 1990s), but the tale needed a new revision based on the stimuluspalooza/Mother of All Bailout frenzy of the last year. As with...
