There was a funny in an email yesterday, referring to W being "baffled" by the congress' refusal to okay the bail out. The funny explained that W didn't understand the difference in the bail out when you got busted for drunk driving and your dad fixed it with one call, and the bail out involved with$700 billion. Dollars.
I keep listening to the news and...it seems so simple to me. So obviously, I'm missing the point but...y'all. The American people struggling with $100K mortgages (and I'm not talking about the people with $400K mortgages making $75K a year) don't want to give money to people who make $19M, $40M or $150M bonuses..........IN ONE YEAR. I'm not greedy but Jesus Christ! Why would you reward the fuck-ups? And while yes, I'm simplifying, that's the point...it looks REAL simple.
Like I said, obviously I don't get it.
