Not a day can go by, it seems, without Dick Cheney attempting to prop up his legacy and Mark Sanford busting out declarations of love for his mistress. Racialicious' Latoya Peterson and I have some advice for both of them.
I wouldn't say that the economy is dead; I'd just say that those who are in positions to shape economic policy are idiots engaged in the world's largest ongoing clusterfuck.
Also, policymakers' fates are too tied with the fates of banks and other financial institutions.
My solution is to move to Candyland.
