Bailout passes, 263-171

The House approves the foot-long double-decker crap sandwich. In a related development, Obama moves to +7 in the Gallup daily tracking poll.

Time to call in the dogs, piss on the fire and go home, boys. This one's over.

Team Maverick has given us a textbook lesson in political incompetence: Take ownership of the unpopular side of a big issue, then hurl accusations of bad faith at all who disagree. Pay attention kids, this will be on your final exam Nov. 4.

UPDATE: For some reason, the Prince of Pessimism doesn't link me in his roundup, although I beat those big shot pundits to the punch. When I was hanging with Michelle at Denver, I asked her why Allahpundit hates me so much. She said I'm just imagining things, but it's not paranoia if they really are out to get you.

10/3: Campaign Pre-Mortem, Part I
10/2: Team Maverick hoists the white flag


  1. I don't buy this whole freakout thing. The polls are horribly biased and skewed towards Dems in their samples and weighting, some by as much as 15-20% (some more), and you yourself have pointed this out many times! It's not over by a long shot.

  2. Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

    A bank is nearly bankrupt......

    How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

    They bailout trouble finance company, but they will not bail out your credit card bills……You got no choice, and no point pointing finger but you can prevent similar things from happen again……

    Who fault?

    The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......because the top management will be concern about their own pay check……

    Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member, House of representative again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....

  3. FYI - last night I went to a small event for McCain in CA. A Republican county chairman from NY was in attendance because he was visiting. As a county chairman, he has a pretty good idea of what is going on in the state as a whole. He was very optimistic about Mac's chances in NY considering the current landscape. New York state of all places! We are still in this. Don't give up.
