We are ruled by idiots.
Boehner and McCain discussed the bailout plan, but Republican leadership aides described the conversation as somewhat surreal. Neither man was familiar with the details of the proposal being pressed by House conservatives, and up to the moment they departed for the White House yesterday afternoon, neither had seen any description beyond news reports.
In all honesty, I’m actually glad that the fiscally conservative Republicans and McCain are slowing this up in their own way. The longer this takes, the better for taxpayers.
