Chart of the Day

Yeah, I know I should be blogging about the failed bailout bill, but that would take more time than I've got.  Instead, you just get this chart (via Andrew Sullivan):

Actually, I'll borrow Sullivan's brief commentary as well:

There's nothing wrong with cutting pork and off-shore drilling, done
responsibly. But if you think these are actual solutions to America's
real fiscal crisis, you really need to find another line of work

I don't know what's worse– that John McCain would actually think these are real solutions or that he would lie so blatantly to the American people.  One things is for sure, he'd much rather talk about earmarks (or probably anything) than his tax proposals.
