We Ain't Gonna Take It, And Paulson And Bernanke Ain't Gonna Get It
  • Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chair Bernanke were on the Hill today, metaphorical hats in hands, asking for gobs of money and the ability to spend it with no oversight. Unlike what Sarah Palin actually said about the Bridge To Nowhere, Congress told them, "No thanks." [Washington Post]
  • Dick Cheney tried his hand at asking nicely, but House Republicans, knowing Cheney well, told him to go fuck himself. A couple of them then fist-bumped Pat Leahy on the way out of the meeting. [Politico]
  • Ahmadinejad doesn't care who we elect because he plans to keep building his nukes regardless. [CNN]
  • The Supreme Court issued a stay of execution for a Georgia man convicted of killing a police office on the sole basis of eyewitness testimony since recanted. Scalia, Alito and Roberts must have taken a really long lunch today. [CNN]
  • Rachel Maddow is kicking Larry King's wrinkly old-man ass. [Huffington Post]
  • Even Fox News thinks it's "unprecedented" that McCain and Palin aren't allowing reporters to even shout questions at them. No, really. They're pissed too. [Huffington Post]
  • But it's totally in line with other potential McCain Administration policies, like not talking to Israel, Syrian or the Palestinians about that whole peace-process thing. That bores Johnny. [JTA]
  • Rush Limbaugh: more of a fucked-up racist piece of shit than you thought. [Think Progress]
  • And, finally, some men's delusions know no bounds. [Politico]
