Default Jay Leno on bailout

I usually don't watch him, but I was too lazy to find the remote. Here is the funny truth.

"And it is pretty scary, this economy, don’t you think? Doesn’t it make you yearn for the good old days we were just worried about oil hitting 150 bucks a barrel?

And this is what I love about this whole thing. Congress said today, “The days of getting money just for the asking are over!” And then they ask for $700 billion.

See, you know the way a bailout works? Here’s the way a bailout works. A failed president and a failed Congress invest $700 billion of your money in failed businesses. Believe me, this can’t fail. "

Unfortunately we have to pay "stupid tax" on this one. I think congress feels like letting these banks fall alone will drop the economy with it... I'm not an economist, so I have to take smarter people's word for it.

this time it's only a 3 page document for this fiasco, so none of them have an excuse when they sell us down the river.

The problem is that the smarter people aren't making the rules or running the government. Strategery anyone?
