      Passed and signed by Bush today. The market closed down regardless.

      I think Paul meant that Biden will wipe Palin out in the debate. I'm inclined to agree. A lot of Republicans, including Bush's speech writer, David Frum have been publicly skeptical about Palin's qualifications.

      We the people just lost 1 trillion dollars today.  I think it was important to get the bill passed. 

      Chef, I am surprised that the Democrats are being blamed by anyone.  It was supposed to be an equal split- that was the bipartisan agreement.  The Dems delivered over half at 140 and the Republicans fell WAY short at 65.  And it was the Republican's own President's bill.  I don't think Pelosi's speech affected more than 12... if that.  I believe this was McCain and Bush's failure to get out the vote.

      Ralph, as far as heroes, I believe any incumbent of either party who voted for the bill was a hero. It was potential political suicide. They modeled patriotism over self-interest.

      What does it mean to eat Palin's lunch, Paul?

      Au contraire. Wall Street expected that the bailout was in the bag. It does not like surprises. Hence the 777 point drop.

      I still can't make sense of this mess. Did the markets really need to go down over 700 points. It feels like the market is saying no bailout. Not now and not in a few days.

      Biden is going to eat Palin's lunch on Thursday.

      I'm betting that they'll try again and pass the bill within a few days. The consequences of not doing so will become more apparent to the naysayers in both parties.

      The trouble is that many people think the Republicans just saved the nation because so many of them shot down the proposal.  There are people out there who still believe in the trickle down economy.  Personally, I don't look forward to be trickled upon, so just clear up the mess, Washington, and make the economy work for us, not against us.

      Enough with the political, whining "You hurt my feelings" crap I hear coming from the minority party in Congress - get on the ball or resign!

      And Ms. Pelosi, next time wait until the measure is passed before telling everyone the causes of this thing.  Never count the votes before the votes are cast.

      I couldn't get the original link to work any more either. Sorry. It showed how every Congressman voted, state by state.

      Ralph, I'm having trouble uploading the Roll Call site above.  It is sitting on a blank Washington Post page.

      Thee are plenty of villains; no heroes. The GOP just shot itself in the foot.

      Yup. So who are the heroes?
