Jackass Missing In Action

On Friday last one of the biggest banks in the country, INDYmac went belly up after depositors made a Capraesque run on it seeking their money. Over the weekend the U. S. government announced that it would bail out the two biggest quasi-governmental mortgage banks, Fannie and Freddy - Mae. Where is dear leader-in chief as the country seems to be coming apart at the seams? In the old days a real president would have stepped up to the mike and made a speech to reassure Americans about the country - he would have said something like "All we have to fear is ...fear itself." But we have George junior, a pretender to the White House, liar, and war criminal, so even if he did say something who would believe him anyway? To this we've come, to quote Menotti. Shame.
