    Buy out a fat pig of a middle management insurance corporation, AIG, for the paltry sum of $85 BILLION.

    Federal Reserve takes over AIG - Sep. 16, 2008

    but the Fed didn't raise interest rates this time. Wheew!! Almost thought we were going to be given more inflation by our monetary overlords. :rolleyes:

    AIG bailout upsets Republican lawmakers - CNN.com

    McCain makes an ass out of himself with his statements in this article. Funny thing is, all the gurus and critics don't even know what the hell credit default swaps are - including Bush. How in the Sam Hell is Bush supposed to be in charge of credit default swaps? I'm also pissed that I have a weed problem in my back yard. WTF? Which Dem economist had this problem pinpointed? Oh, I forgot, Nancy Pelosi.

    Get off this guys fucking back. Shit, Viagra side effects happened on his watch, too.
