“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

The bailout failed to pass the house. Republicans fell into line and voted against it big time. The market is also tanking, down 500+ points or so.

This can be good for the democrats, if we have enough guts. . .

1. Rethugs got greedy and wanted to bailout the rich again instead of average folks, insisting that help for homeowners headed toward foreclosure gets booted. They voted against the average american today.

2. Rethugs are indecisive in an emergency like this one, and put party before our families and country.

Really . . . now is the time for Obama to demand 60 seconds of airtime on the evening news, and have an FDR moment.

If the news needs to have Grandpappy McUnstable blather for a minute let him. . .
