Boy, was it a bizarre day. The news of the failed bailout vote had me thinking of stockpiling canned goods and starting an indoor garden. While I've always had faith in Peter DeFazio and Earl Blumenauer, I have just enough economic knowledge to be truly scared but not enough to see a viable way out of this mess.
For now, we all have to sit tight until Thursday, when most lawmakers will return from the Rosh Hashanah holiday to once again consider legislation to resolve our nation's financial crisis.
Until then, who wants a diversion? Well, other than reviewing the funds in one's retirement account...
Apparently, part of the CBS interview between Sarah Palin and Katie Couric that has not been yet released reveals the fact that Palin cannot name a single Supreme Court decision other than Roe V. Wade.
So, here's the deal. Earlier, I posted a challenge that I would send money to the Obama campaign for every Republican lie proven wrong, up to $600. Despite the exemplary efforts of some avid participants (thanks, Rebecca), I've yet to get to the goal.
I'm going to try again. For every precedent setting Supreme Court decision that made life better for women, people of color, gay men and lesbians, and the working class, I will send $5 to the Obama campaign, up to $300. Please include the specifics of the case.
How many of us have more legal and historical acumen than Sarah Palin?
