Fire Sale

I'll tell you who thinks the Dems are going to win this election--the republicans and the bush whitehouse, that's who. Over at TPM Josh was calling Bush's poison pill in the form of John McCain the "tiberius option" in which the failing ceasar forces the worst choice on his country so that, retroactively, he looks like a god. But to me this whole thing is starting to look more like a mafia style bust out and a liquidation sale. This bailout and all the other assorted stuff that is being swept up in it is nothing short of Bush's fire sale. He's going out of business and he's selling off the entire country's inventory to pay for his friends and their retirements, leaving nothing for the rest of us.
