No Bailout For You!

Friday, Dec. 12, 2008 4:05 AM

It seems Senate Republicans have put the screws to the Big Three automakers, defeating the bailout measure 52-25. Now, I won't argue that the bailout should have sailed through Congress just as quickly as another must-have package did ... but I am wondering where the Republicans beating their chests over how they're protecting me, the taxpayer, from reckless spending were when $700 billion went out the door. Or when all we got for our tax dollars was 4,000+ dead soldiers and a litany of 'stay the course.'


Bay Buchanan scrapes for a talking point by citing Barack Obama's plans for using his full name to take his Oath of Office and using that to justify the criticism of said name during the campaign.

Never mind that it's routine for a president to use their full name in taking the oath. Ronald Wilson Reagan. George Herbert Walker Bush. William Jefferson Clinton. George Walker Bush.

I'm sure that if Obama chose not to use his middle name, people like Buchanan would find that suspicious or some kind of dire omen as well.

Hmph. Apparently, Ann Coulter has nothing better to do, either.


Legendary pin-up icon Bettie Page has passed away at age 85, after suffering a heart attack last week.

(Oh, and as far as Jennifer Aniston's 'nude' pictures in GQ go - she's wearing a strategically-placed necktie - Bettie had more sex appeal in her little finger than Aniston will ever have.)
