It’s better in Dixie
I failed to turn the radio off after the good program this morning, and the horrible, despicable one — the Laura Ingraham Show — played on. The topic is, of course, the House’s refusal to bail out the high rollers. For once this shrill, mindless whore for the Republican power mafia didn’t just cheer on everything the Bush mob does — in this case she’s actually taking the opposite position from them and cheering on the House of Representatives’ response to public outrage.
And in passing, Ingraham noted the prominence of Southerners among the Reps voting against the deal, even commenting "As usual, the South gets it right." Thus this heroic stand is in a sense another Southern accomplishment against the yankee fedgov’s chronic socialism.
