Laughter, the cure for a 'mental recession'. Yes, America, you whiners, the joke's on you.
I cannot help but be amazed that McCain is hugging Phil Gramm so tightly to his breast. The chief architect of our current financial woes, which are still at phase one, would be someone to shun if there was any expectation that it might be necessary to distance oneself from the policies that are bankrupting the country.
The damage the kleptocrats (Gramm is a leading kleptocrat) have done so far is breathtaking, kept in for another four years the possibilities are colossal.
How much was Gramm responsible for the current woes of UBS? A lot would be my guess. If so, you would think they would want to heave him overboard, but maybe they are betting that he'll have a plum post in the McCain WhiteHouse, and a bit of quid pro quo might help bail them out.
It would be inconceivable that America would elect McCain with his embrace of failed policies, if we hadn't seem them elect Feckless Leader, twice!
