What The Editors said:
But, while annoying, there can be a certain value to being the asshole who responds with a dismissive "O RLY?" to everything you say. I generally valuate this in inverse proportion to my ability to understand the assertion being made; in the case of throwing $700 billion dollars at some kind of fancy Wall Street clusterfuck, for example, I actually value it pretty highly.
I don’t think the Democratic leadership appreciates just how unpopular this bailout is, or how unpopular it will make them.
