Whoops!

McCain Calls for End to Big Business Bailouts

And now, this latest dispatch from the U.S. Department of Unintentional Irony: Sen. John McCain spoke out against the Federal Reserve’s recent bids to give life support (read: gigantic amounts of money) to failing financial institutions.

If you thought the Iraq war was expensive, the Bush administration is also throwing an estimated $1-trillion bailout of major finance firms to prevent a meltdown of the U.S. economy.

Palin Backs Off War With Russia

Some flip-flops are more welcome than others. During Sarah Palin’s interview with Sean Hannity, which “The Daily Show” likened to an infomercial, the VP candidate said war with Russia would be “off the table.” That’s a different tune than the one she hummed for ABC’s Charlie Gibson.

Bush Makes Cameo Appearance at White House

President Bush had been laying low over recent days, but it seems his inner circle considered it prudent to trot him out for a brief appearance at the White House. He surfaced on Thursday to speak vaguely about the snowballing economic crisis on Wall Street before disappearing once again.

Palin’s Crowd Doesn’t Have Time for McCain

Radio Iowa has a great play-by-play of a McCain-Palin rally in Cedar Rapids. With the “Top Gun” soundtrack heralding the arrival of the ticket (seriously), the crowd was pumped—for Sarah Palin. A casual poll before the rally suggested that Palin was the event’s star, and that sentiment was backed up when the audience started filing out five minutes into McCain’s speech.

Tent Cities Springing Up

One sign of the nation’s shaky economy can be seen in the growing numbers of newly homeless people forming “tent cities” around the U.S. The rise of these encampments is being attributed partly to the foreclosure crisis in the housing market, and the newest economic developments aren’t likely to ease the situation.

Hagel Doubts Palin’s Readiness to Lead

Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel has openly questioned whether Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has the experience or qualifications to effectively serve as president, the Omaha World-Herald reported Thursday.
