Support the sane billionaires 

This summer Jonathan at TR gave the definitive account of American political dynamics:

INSANE BILLIONAIRES: Let's kill everyone and take their money!

SANE BILLIONAIRES: I like the way you think. I really do. But if we keep everyone alive, and working for us, we'll make even more money, in the long term.


At the moment, the insane billionaires are trying to take everyone's money, though the theft will likely result in the deaths of millions -- and even of some rich people. The proposed bailout is evidence of virtually suicidal criminality.

Today the sane billionaires managed to achieve a small victory, temporarily slowing down the bailout juggernaut. But it will be hard for them to hold to this line now that Wall St has freaked out on the news that the criminals might not be able so easily to replace their losses with taxpayer money.

Today I called Schumer, Yvette Clark, and Nancy Pelosi, and told them not to give in to the bailout screamers. Tomorrow morning I think I will do so again -- maybe it makes a difference...

Anyway, it can't hurt:

Congress main line
(202) 224-3121

Nancy Pelosi
(202) 225-0100

Harry Reid
(202) 224-3542
