  •  The ONLY way I see that happening (6+ / 0-)

    is if the market wakes the eff up and realizes that the damned inmates are running the asylum in the House and panics BIG TIME.  Remember the first TARP vote (yes, yes - I know we all HATE TARP)?  It failed.  And the market promptly dropped 698 points.  It was breathtaking.  And the near-panic ratcheted up to where it was palpable, and then it passed.

    That's the only way I see this happening, and Wall Street doesn't seem to have a clue just how deep this Congressional pile of shit really is.

      Remember his face, when he had to walk out and deliver that short "press cf", to explain that the whole world was about to blow up?

      Walked out, recited his short speech, turned around and walked back, wooden with fear.  Some pundit noted the resemblance to a cuckoo clock and omigod, it was so on the mark.
