Serious people are all in a tither about the failure of the bailout bill yesterday. Even though as of now the market has rebounded by about half of what it lost.
Don't forget that people were saying that the market is really over priced anyway. In addition, they, the serious ones, all seriously believed Bush in 2002 and 2003. Now they realize that maybe that guy lied to them then. They also now think that maybe those people were not the most competent people either, you know. I mean we all know they screwed up Katrina, didn't they, but nothing like that would happen again, would it?
Finally, like FISA we can be sure that the Dems will return crawling and roll over on their back to have their tummys scratched by Bush when they pass an almost identical bill in a couple of days. Even though by then it will be clear that this bill isn't what is needed. More is needed to help the poor and middle class. None of that will be given because well we really can't push now can we?
It kind of reminds me of the part in Animal House where they trashed Flounder's brother's car. Remember? "You screwed up. You trusted us."
