Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Okay, it's not Sunday, but it is the 40th Anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Not one of our country's better moments

Hillary and McCain showed up
in Alabama to mark the event, Obama did not.

Hillary and McCain had to go because...they're white?

Anyway, also today...

George W. Bush met with Putin, the outgoing-not very-outgoing-not really-going-away premier or prime minister or dictator or whatever of Russia.

Bush told Putin that the two of them are just a couple of old warhorses about to step down.

Ever a master of the mixed metaphor, what he probably meant to say is that they are about to stand down, or maybe they will both be put down. Can't tell with this guy.

The housing market is in the toilet.

The job market has been pink-slipped.

And the government is up in arms over the Bear Stearns Bailout.

I don't see the problem, the investment bank guys need some help if they are going to keep buying $40 Million Dollar Apartments in Manhattan, and estates in Connecticut, and multiple jets to carry their multiple mistresses on shopping trips to Milan.

Please, give these guys a break. They are just as noble as any other hardworking stiff.

Doesn't EVERYBODY deserve a government bailout of their hedge fund business?

And so it goes...
