Something Feral

Digging up the flower-beds.

The White House doth protest too much, methinks.

Santelli merits a response from the Hope-Change Foundation:
“I’ve watched Mr. Santelli on cable the past 24 hours or so. I’m not entirely sure where Mr. Santelli lives or in what house he lives but the American people are struggling every day to meet their mortgages, stay in their jobs, pay their bills, send their kids to school,” Gibbs said. “I think we left a few months ago the adage that if it was good for a derivatives trader that it was good for Main Street. I think the verdict is in on that,” the press secretary said, poking directly at the cable journalist, who reports from the trading floor at the Chicago Board of Trade.

Gibbs insisted Santelli was misinformed when he said Obama’s program would amount to a transfer of money from prudent taxpayers to those who had taken reckless risks.
Under the assumption that those without financial liabilities will not be getting financial assistance, and some of those that have said liabilities are receiving assistance, funding a bailout for a subset of the taxpayers at the expense of all taxpayers amounts to exactly that, Gibbs.

Santelli was on Kudlow's show tonight. He had a copy of Obama's plan in his hand. He read a little bit of it, then said he still didn't like it and ripped it up at the end of the segment.

Yeah, Santelli rocks.

Gibbs, on the other hand, is a tool. I'm ashamed he's a fellow southron.

Agreed. Interesting times are indeed ahead.

Well, at least the gun show is here this weekend; I doubt they'll have tea, but they will certainly have "party favors".
