This entire 'emergency bailout' of Wall Street is a bunch of bullshit.

Rep. Kaptur (D-Ohio) nails it:


BushCo/McCain Inc. dropped this on Congress 2 weeks before recess in hopes that they could scare them into passing Paulson's bullshit bailout plan.

They've been planning this for months, though.

Bush Mouthpiece Admits: They’ve Been Sitting on this Plan

Emergency? White House admits to planning bailout for MONTHS.


Yes, how convenient.

Bush Administration will keep secret 'grim' Afghanistan report quiet until after election:

"A secret US intelligence report which says the political and military situation in Afghanistan is 'grim' will be withheld from the public until after the election, a new report says.

Intelligence officials are finishing up the National Intelligence Estimate on Aghanistan, according to ABC's Brian Ross, 'but there are 'no plans to declassify' any of it before the election,' an official said.

Keeping the intelligence report under wraps would likely help Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)."

Just as evil as Cheney and half as smart.

Can you ever think of a time when a VP candidate hasn't taken a reporter's question in over a month?

McPalin thinks you're stupid.

Palin meets Karzai without usual reporters in tow :

"NEW YORK - Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who has not held a press conference in nearly four weeks of campaigning, on Tuesday barred most pool reporters from her meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the first foreign head of state she has ever met.

Journalists protested the campaign's decision to exclude all but photographers and a TV crew from Palin's sessions with foreign leaders. CNN decided to withdraw its TV crew, effectively denying Palin the high visibility she sought for her initial foray into world affairs. The campaign then reversed course, saying pool reporters — a small group that provides information to all media — could attend the meetings planned after Karzai hosted Palin at his suite in The Barclay New York Hotel."


What Happens When We Die? - Yahoo! News:

"A fellow at New York City's Weill Cornell Medical Center, Dr. Sam Parnia is one of the world's leading experts on the scientific study of death. Last week Parnia and his colleagues at the Human Consciousness Project announced their first major undertaking: a 3-year exploration of the biology behind 'out-of-body' experiences. The study, known as AWARE (AWAreness during REsuscitation), involves the collaboration of 25 major medical centers through Europe, Canada and the U.S. and will examine some 1,500 survivors of cardiac arrest. TIME spoke with Parnia about the project's origins, its skeptics and the difference between the mind and the brain."
