What Do You Mean There’s No Funsies Table At This Casino? I Need A Do-Over…

Ahhhhh, supply-siders and free marketeers, squealing like little pigs when it’s THEIR tails that get caught. I once defined “stoicism” (as known to the ancient Greeks) as the philosophy of the rich and powerful. It’s easy to believe that things are the way they are because either it’s the best way or the only way for them to be…when you’re on top. The Free Market solves everything. Perhaps it is solving THIS. It’s time we got rid of the tinhorn gamblers who are playing high-finance poker with our lives, our money, our welfare. But watch how fast Mr. MBA rushes around saying, “We’ve got to bail out the banks right away!” After all, it’s HIS base that’s in trouble now. We rush into things too much in this country. Let’s make this bail-out do more for the people who’ve really been hurt, the ones who’ve lost homes and jobs. It’s just too bad that we can’t grab the assholes who bailed themselves out with their golden parachutes and have skipped town.

Maybe that’s the ticket for John McCain. He desperately wants to invade SOMEWHERE. Perhaps it’s time to invade the Cayman Islands? :)

Finally we see the results of removing regulations from banking–CHAOS. I’ll bet Bush has a solution–making the tax cuts permanent. :)

Don’t Criticize Her, Either Or She’ll Have Your Boss Fired

Don’t Criticize Her, Either Or She’ll Have Your Boss Fired

I guess that’s how they vetted her–they had so little time between finding out the Democratic Party hadn’t split down the middle and McCain’s announcement, they must’ve depended on an Internet public records site :) And her 70 question form. Of course, since she’s a Republican, she can’t admit she’s ever done anything wrong until she’s caught, so naturally she came out clean as a whistle in her own mind. We can’t criticize her about anything either–the new Republican strategy–find someone with a personal tragedy–a kid with Down’s Syndrome? — to ensure that hard questions never get asked. Look at McCain. How many houses do you have, John? Well, if you had spent 5-1/2 years at the Hanoi Hilton, you wouldn’t know how many houses you had either. I like the way Laura Bush tried to imply that any criticism of Sarah by the Democratic Party would be sexist–even though they all BUT nominated Hillary Clinton and if she had not had a strong opponent in Barack Obama, she very well might have been the Democratic candidate. But, I guess they’ve thrown in the towel on the experience issue. After all, Obama MUST have enough experience if the person the Republicans have selected as Plan B has even less. My goodness, the town she was mayor of had less population than the little burg in New Jersey I grew up in and the entire state of Alaska’s population could be fit into Little Rock, Arkansas. I guess there was nearly a war in the Aleutians tho–she must have gotten foreign policy experience somewhere. (I’ve stolen a few of these talking points from somewhere on the net I can’t remember right now).But check out the Talking Points Memo for some of Sarah’s other qualifications

It seems Louisiana was spared a repeat of Katrina, which was OK because George Bush had no intention of getting any closer than San Antonio. It DID rain on McCain’s parade tho :)
