Hot Off the Presses

Senate Releases $350 Billion in Bailout Funds to Obama

Spectacular. Your useful idiots in Washington at work.

Not only did they (narrowly) allow this farce to continue, they ensured that a little under 1/3rd of the money ($100bil) will go right down the toilet - mortgage help. It's important that we punish those who were responsible while helping those who can't afford their new homes. It's almost enough to make me want to stop paying my mortgage quite frankly.

But it's ok!

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., a staunch Obama ally, said the letter and a personal call from her friend helped.

She's giving the incoming administration "the benefit of the doubt," for now, because, "If they don't do what they say they are going to do, then they know that will be a boat load of political capital out the window."

Oh yeah, they're going to be worried about spending political capital with a government stuffed full of their cronies egging them on. Good grief.

The article also mentions a proposed $850bil stimulus package, I'll go over that later if I'm still conscious after banging my head against a wall for an hour or two.

We just gave the alcoholic another bottle of booze.
