Maria Sharapova

Just Fourteen Seconds

If you can spare fourteen seconds of your time, Speaker Pelosi admits she doesn't approve of the congress in which she's the majority leader. I admire that kind of candor, of course, but if you don't approve of the job your doing, and you don't resign, isn't that a complicit admission that you're only hanging on because you love the power? Maybe it's the big ol' private jet supplied-no, confiscated- from the military. Or maybe she stays around for the chance to blink in front of all the cameras.

A billion internets for the most appropriate "fail" graphic.

Please feel free to consider this an open thread. ^_^

In this Bloomberg article I saw a gem of a statement:

Desmond Lachman, a former International Monetary Fund official now at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, blames Greenspan's libertarian bent for his failure to curb lending abuses: ``That philosophy got us into a lot of trouble.''

What do you guys think? I've never seen libertarianism attacked so blatantly by an economist.
