Now it looks like we shall have both. Just nice. And as usual, when this bailout fails, there will be no mention of undoing that tangle of pork. Rather, we will be sold yet another bill of goods about nationalizing the airlines, auto industry, etc etc. Perhaps even energy. Next thing you know, we'll be putting on Olympics with thousands of regimented youths forced to sit for dozens of hours in diapers due to lack of restroom facilities, and feeding our children milk cut half-and-half with industrial solvents due to missed production quotas outlined in our five year plan by our Central Planning Committe. And we'll collectively muse in wide-eyed wonderment "where did it all go?".
