See if any of this sounds familiar: As soon as the bailout was announced, it became clear that Treasury officials would hire outsiders to perform their jobs for them — at a profit. Private companies wanting to help manage the bailout were given just two days to apply for massive, multiyear contracts. Since it was such a mad rush — after all, the entire economy was about to implode — there was no time for an open bidding process. Nor was there time to draft rigorous rules to make sure that those applying don't have serious conflicts of interest. Instead, applicants were asked to disclose their conflicts and to explain — and this is not a joke — their "philosophy in fulfilling your duty to the Treasury and the U.S. taxpayer in light of your proprietary interests and those of other clients." In other words, an open invitation to bullshit about how much they love their country and how they can be trusted to regulate themselves.

i sure do love the northeast. at least over half of its voting residents anyway. but on a personal note, i should probably pay attention to slandering susan collins more. wtf? don't you just vote the line in maine? ... obviously those who would love collins would do just that. and they voted for mccain. but if she won, that means she's got democratic support. so? show yourself! sexist women? mentally challenged? or do people feel bad for her? or hopeful that they too can obviously succeed? or am i missing something? has she done something even slightly thoughtful? how about productive? has she even said anything that applies to reality? has she said anything that anyone understands?

serioulsy, i'm no expert.

i'd love to hear of some positive moves that have resulted from the bold insightful political manuverings of Susan Collins.

or did a number of republicans actually vote for obama?
if things go really well...obama is declared the victor tonight and we wait out little dick and littler dick, fingers crossed

if things go well...no presidential winners tonight, just the corporate media

if things go not so well...obama is declared the loser and riots ensue

if things go really not so well...obama is declared the loser and life goes on, we won't hear about the voting problems until 2012, on the day before the next election
