That's a very smart post, but cowpoke Mike Meyer has eclipsed it with the comment of the century.

Ah yes, as George Carlin used to say "It's all bullshit out there, and it's all bad for you."

Jon, I don't see why you have to pick on Paulson, or whoever the anonymous coward was. Don't you realize that it's all politics, and he did the best he could? In a perfect world, he could have made everything turn out the way we leftists would like it to, but we don't live in a perfect world and should recognize that. The same goes for Bush, Bush III in the White House now, of course. The Republicans couldn't make things all better until they'd won a few more elections. Until we can get the votes, we should stop whining.

It's all about the Obomb in '12, that's when he's going to unleash his true radical self. So just take this first four years of "faking right" with a knowing smile, because Otopia awaits us in 2012, as the Mayan calendar predicts.

The "New Yorker" is (and has been for over a decade), a journal of, by and for Corporate America.

Remember how at one point Rachel Carson could rest easy, knowing that when she finished "Silent Spring" The New Yorker would publish major parts of it?

Now a days, The New Yorker would rather have entire articles praising Monsanto's Head of State than mention how awful for the environment the Monsanto-designed GMO's truly are. So what if ten thousand Indian farmers off themselves every year, due to losing their farms to the cotton seeds from Hell? Monsanto is an All American Corporation and deserves only praise. (According to the New Yorker.)

It is is just one more part and parcel of this nation's Orwellian nightmare.

The late great crusader Che Guevera once pointed out that when the military-supported, fascist dictater overstepped the boundaries and fell into such immense unpopularity that a revolt was likely, then that same military's inner circle of fiends would choose someone likeable to take over. So that is "the negotiated solution" that got us Obama vs McCain/Palin last fall. (I haven't decided if Obama knows this about himself or not. He may well be simply enjoying his visits with the Princess, as Jimmy Stewart did until he was forced to see reality in "Mr Smith Goes to Washington.)

As for us average people - if you still think that this is a free nation, you really need to be put in a small room and force fed Saint George Carlin's speech about "You and me don't belong to that club," repeatedly until the message is realized in its entirety.

The Mayan calendar just wraps around in 2012, it doesn't predict an apocalypse of any kind.

Thanks, S the Os. I've been living in Otopia for months and I was afraid it would end in 2012. I'lll rest easy now.
