The Crap Sandwich Act of 2008

So the House defeated the Wall Street bailout bill this afternoon, in a vote that crossed party lines more than I thought it would.

John Boehner called the bill "a crap sandwich," and Rep. Paul Braun of Georgia called it some gross kind of s'more. I don't know about all that, but I do think that a lot of the people who loved Ron Paul (but didn't understand what he meant by abolishing the Federal Reserve) are probably feeling like he was right (though still not understanding what the Fed is or does).
