Things I’d Like to Post About Today ….. (092408, Morning)

Filed under: TILTpatBIDHAT — Tom @ 9:13 am

….. But I Don’t Have Any Time For (I guess the typo that was here for a couple of hours is why they have editors :–>):

  • National treasure Michelle “She’s Everywhere” Malkin is covering aspects of the financial industry bailout barely anyone else is touching — the impact of illegal-immigrant lending and the additional ornaments (student loans and car loans) being added to the Christmas tree. They’re really testing our limits, aren’t they? Student loans? This looks like double-dipping, because I thought they were already guaranteed by Uncle Sam if they go bad.
  • Not unrelated news — “Democrats have decided to allow a quarter-century ban on drilling for oil off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to expire next week, conceding defeat in a months-long battle with the White House and Republicans set off by $4 a gallon gasoline prices this summer.” You’ll see why it’s not unrelated in my Pajamas Media column, which will appear tomorrow or Friday. Update: Looks like Friday, but I’m going to bring up topic today on Pajamas TV.
  • I see Warren Buffett is buying assets on the cheap after doing his best to talk down the economy. Nice investment strategy if you have his megaphone.
  • This (“Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac invest in Democrats”; currently experiencing Drudge overload) would keep any other presidential candidate and his party from being self-righteous about the financial industry’s situation — but not “The One” I refer to as “Mr. BOOHOO-OUCH” (Barack O-bomba Overseas HusseinObambiObama – Objectively Unfit Coddler of Haters) and the Democratic Party. According to the Drudge headline, Obama himself raked in over $100K.
  • JammieWearingFool (HT Instapundit) has taken note of the Ohio voting shenanigans of Democratic Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.
  • Sound bite of the day — “Credit Is Not a Civil Right.”


  1. “Thing’s I’d Lie to Post About Today ….

    Well, if you’d just like to call in sick, I suppose that’s okay, but only if you can still get all your work done in a timely manner….

  2. #1, I caught it about a half-hour after your comment. It’ll be a cheap lefty thrill, given than they have nothing else substantive.

  3. #2: I suppose that’s the difference between left and right in the blogosphere – the leftosphere would be scrambling to hide such things, pretending no such thing ever happened. The rightosphere will point them out themselves as they act to right the errors in question.

    It may be that sense of shared ethics in how one deals with one’s errors that helps explain why the MSM sources so much of their recent reporting from the leftosphere – in their mindset, if it hasn’t been hidden or concealed yet, it must still be true.

    Still though, the idea is a great idea for a rainy day post: What kind of personal benefit would justify a lie?
