Americans these days are frogs trapped in a pot of water which is being slowly brought to the boil. Paul Ryan is a politician who sincerely wants to put out the fire.
Unfortunately, Ryan is surrounded in Washington by parasitic politicians intent on pouring gasoline on that fire.
Catastrophe! A bone-jarring crisis that Washington parasites won't let go to waste!
THAT is what Ryan tried to prevent by voting for TARP. THAT is what I'll be trying to prevent when I vote in November.
If years from now Judge Andrew Napolitano curses me from his jail cell and accuses me by asking: "Who did this?"
I'll answer honestly, as Jim Carrey answered in "Liar Liar:"
A mad man, your honor! A desperate fool at the end of his pitiful rope!
