McCain flailing badly on financial crisis

I don't have the time to blog extensively today, but -- among tons of negative wordage being produced today in regards to McCain's incoherent economic gobbledygook -- here are a couple of articles worth read:

A short piece cleverly showing McCain flailing this way and that on the subject of regulation... all in the space of a single day.

An article in the Washington Post examining how McCain and Gramm helped get us into this mess in the first place several years ago.

Is it even remotely possible that McCain is able to shake this stuff off before the election? I can't imagine it. Even considering the amount of lo-info voters out there.

Meanwhile, I just want to say that the idea of taxpayers pouring $85Billion into AIG makes me so very very sincerely fucking pissed.

TOO BAD! Call the fucking waaambulance!

Printing money was a bad idea. Printing more money will only exacerbate the problem....oh wait, let's just change the rules real quick on trading stocks. Fuck the rules we've had for 90 years.

Band Aid after band aid will not stop the bleeding.

To be honest, I'm loving this deal. Shit going in for so long will at some point produce shit.

Where is my fiddle?
