Good editorial here about all the posturing that is going on in Washington about the current financial problems. Here's my favorite sentence.
You can try to prevent a financial meltdown or you can teach Wall Street a lesson, but you can't do both at the same time.
I agree, and I also think that you can't prevent a financial meltdown if your first priority is, say, getting elected. John McCain said he was suspending his campaign to go to Washington and get this fixed, and I hope I see that happen. But I haven't yet.
It's not that I know what to do about this. I don't. But nobody in Congress has shown me that they know what to do about it, either. I just see a bunch of goons trying to score points by talking about what a crisis this is. Well, if it's a crisis, stop talking to the cameras and go get this fixed. Start taking things a little more seriously.
And in the meanwhile, watch this video.
