How The Market Works!

A few clever comedians explain issues such as "market sentiment", subprime lending, SIVs and government bailouts. This was recorded back in October, a few months after Northern Rock experienced a run on the bank in the UK. Watch until the end where they deliver the classic line that will surely be dragged out as the Fed continues to press the panic button.

Partisan Bickering

It was inevitable --- as soon as the Republicans lost power, I knew the gasbags would insist that it's time to let bygones be bygones and meet the Republicans halfway in the spirit of a new beginning. GOP politicians have driven the debt sky-high and altered the government so as to be nearly unrecognizable, so logically the Democrats need to extend the hand of conciliation and move to meet them in the middle --- the middle now being so far right, it isn't even fully visible anymore.

Isn't it funny that these people were nowhere to be found when George W. Bush seized office under the most dubious terms in history, having been appointed by a partisan supreme court majority and losing the popular vote? If there was ever a time for a bunch of dried up, irrelevant windbags to demand a bipartisan government you'd think it would have been then, wouldn't you? (How about after 9/11, when Republicans were running ads saying Dems were in cahoots with Saddam and bin Laden?) But it isn't all that surprising. They always assert themselves when the Democrats become a majority; it's their duty to save the country from the DamnFuc*ingHippie's who are far more dangerous than Dick Cheney could ever be.

Here's how one of the greatest Democratic Presidents got a little partisan, and I say that, cause partisanship - "it's a good thing."

Hillary has put up a very good closing argument. You owe it to yourself to watch it. Today's Campaign Video, however, is Barack Obama's latest. In One Voice the greatest orator of his age delivers highlights from his most famous speech. It doesn't just close the deal. It is inspiring.
