So, what's going to happen with that bailout bill? Now that McCain's come to save ruin everything, who the fuck knows! Bushie is speaking at 9:35 which is sure to be interesting but while we wait, I highly, HIGHLY suggest you listen to this clip from Bill O'Reilly's talk radio show last night, in which he expresses his feelings on the rescue package. For those who can't (I think there are people who can't, I don't know), I've transcribed it below, which wasn't even that labor intensive because I've listened to it many times, with pleasure. Note: this is a two and a half minute monologue. There is no one else talking.
"Most talk radio is conservative dominated ideologues, or kool-aid drinking idiots. Idiots.
Screaming at you "This is socialism, this is this this is that"
"It's Clintons fault, it's Clinton's fault." It's Clinton's fault? Clinton hasn't been in office in 8 years.
It's Bush's fault, it happened on Bush's watch. He could've prevented this. He could've gone easily and said Merrill Lynch is dealing in bad paper he could've said that.
Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac they're dealing in bad paper, so you the investor, don't invest in those companies. You think they would've continued to deal in bad paper? No they would not!
But let's get back to this talk radio stuff
These idiots are misleading you they're lying to you
They're rich, these guys
Big cigars, all of that! Private jets, "Oh yeah, my private jet!"
And they're saying "No bailout, no no uh uh no way"
Hey! You're going to get it, not them
That foreign investment pulls out, we are toast
And they'll pull out if that bailout doesn't happen
Are you getting the message here?
Walk away from these liars, these right wing liars
Walk away from them, they're not looking out for you!
I don't even want to talk about the far left
Barney Frank? Disgusting!
It's you you big fat toad, YOU!
Dodd, sittin' there
[incomprehensible impression of Dodd]
It's you Dodd, you! You knew!
I swear to god, if they were in this room right now, I would hit them
Dodd and Frank
The house finance and senate finance
Don't point a finger at anybody, I'll break that finger off
So! you got corruption on the right, and corruption on the left
And who gets it? You get it, you, the hardworking person
The next politician that gets up their and points a finger, I'm go after them myself
Shut up! Fix it! These are people's lives
I got enough money in the bank. Unless a bank fails, I'm fine
But you're probably not fine
I'm tired of these charlatans on both sides
Lying to you, because they're ideological kool-aid drinkers or corrupt toads
And I'm talkin to you Barney Frank
Who's the guy who was saying,
"If you don't lend money to poor people you're a bigot"
Who was saying that barney, WHO?!
[pause] I gotta take a break"
