Getting Religion

From ABC: "A $14 billion rescue package for the nation's imperiled auto industry sped to approval in the U.S. House Wednesday night, but the emergency bailout was still in jeopardy from Republicans who were setting out roadblocks in the Senate."

Is it possible the Republicans have finally learned corporate welfare is even more damaging to the nation's fisc and morals than welfare for the individual; the first fruits of the Obama victory and Democratic control of both houses?

Depend upon it, Sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.
