Image via Wikipedia What can I say? Companies found the ultimate bag holder? Next week I will write an article about when the Obama administration will finally stop talking down the economy.

If you are expecting that a Pink Wardrobe Malfunction or other such public calamity will obliterate any future political chances for Sarah Palin (and yes, I am talking to you, who has hopes she will do poorly during the debate), leave all your hopes.

A Streetcar Named Wishful Economic Thinking

Franklin @ April 15, 2008 # 12 Comments

We are broke. We may have a couple more months of sustained living if the Fed keeps injecting liquidity into the system, but to all intents and purposes, America is broke.
