'Tis The Season to Take Chances


As Senate negotiations on the auto industry bailout stall, at least two senators are starting to sound a little desperate.

On Thursday, Harry Reid predicted financial doom. "I dread looking at Wall Street tomorrow," Reid said. "It's not going to be a pleasant sight."  Someone tell Reid it's okay to look now.  The Dow closed at 8,629.68 (up 64.59) on Friday, and no one was jumping out of buildings.

Yesterday, a pathetic Barbara Boxer put a bizarre holiday twist on the bailout debate.  On the senate floor, clad in festive red, Boxer implored her colleagues: "This is the Christmas Season. My goodness, let's take a chance on this. Let's take a chance on this."

Honorable Senators, please try to be sober.  There's no reason to panic.  The unions know you're trying very hard, and you're going to get your foolish bailout sooner or later.

Good catch. Boxer's comment has to be in the all-time stupid category. Where are the "separation of church and state" people to protect her flagrant religiosity? Why would a holy day have anything to do with long term gov't business?

democrats are awfully desperate to launch their takeover while Bush is still president.

I like that line! It is so true! Maybe I can borrow it?

Watching them try to spin this Bailout as something other than what it is a Payoff to their Union Backers, would be amusing if it wasn't going to cost us all so much Money...

"Someone should tell Harry it's okay to look.." Loved that. He was hoping the Markets would plummet. Guess WallStreet still prefers Capitalism to Socialism.
