Let The Bailout Begin ! ! !

Becky, The Girl In Short Shorts Talking About Whatever has the best post I've found on the subprime mortgage bailout. This is how it begins:

Congress has given us the most expensive, scandalous financial bailout in seventy years. Bush has promised to sign the shameful bill, designed to prop up the housing market, and calm the jitters of the Wall Street boys and girls.Like almost everything Congress does it will be expensive, underwhelming, put American taxpayers on the hook, make money for their partners in crime, is a nice pander to bring home to the voters—and will, in the end, exacerbate the core problems with the economy.

This is how it ends:

The final rub is the national debt ceiling is increased to 10.6 trillion, so it is legally possible to fund the bailout.Don't you wish you could call up VISA, and tell them you have doubled the limit on your card?

The really good stuff is in the middle.

Becky likes the artwork to the left. Don't know where she finds it.

Yeah, I know.

As best I can tell, Becky is a devout Libertarian.
Regarding her other attractions, I'm certain that she plays for the other team.

And where does she find all those bizarre pictures?
