If you haven't seen them elsewhere, here are the words that make it abundantly clear the $700 billion bail-out proposed by the Bush Administration is a boondoggle:

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.

In other words, if Paulson decided to blow the whole thing off and spend the money on cheap hookers and booze, well, it's non-reviewable by any court of law or administrative agency.

Federal judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly has issued an order directing Vice President Dick Cheney to preserve records from his tenure.

This is in response to a lawsuit prompted by the nonsensical claim that Cheney exists in some vague 'fourth branch' of government and is neither part of the Executive or Legislative Branches, and concerns that the Bush Administration would destroy or otherwise make unavailable critical documents from the past eight years.
