McCain/Obama: (Tentative) Support For (Tentative) Bailout

McCain, on ABC's "The Week" this morning: "Hopefully yes...This is something that all of us will swallow hard and go forward with...the option of doing nothing is simply not an acceptable option."
Obama, On CBS's "Face The Nation" this morning: "My inclination is to support it...While I look forward to reviewing the language of the legislation, it appears that the tentative deal embraces these principles [that I said needed to be in the package]."
Great, right? Anyway, since neither of them will wholeheartedly, without reservation, get behind something, we'll have to pick up the slack.*

*In a bipartisan way! Supporters-- she's looking cute! Non-supporters: that shit about the bailout bill is verbatim from the Couric interview!

"I saw Chas Gasparino walking down the middle of 20th Street this morning [Saturday] at around 11, trying to hail a cab. And by middle I mean basically on the double yellow line. He had on a suit with no tie, and was walking slowly but with determination, carrying a weekend bag over his shoulder. He was with a middle-aged woman. He was fully dressed, of course, but his pecs looked huge. "
