Dear “Everyday Working Class” Sarah
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Your custom-built lake house sounds nice,
And your plane, boats, and tanning device.
But kindly don’t claim
You’re a “working class” dame.
We don’t buy it, so sorry, no dice.

Well, Republicans are blaming Nancy Pelosi for the bailout not going through, but Democrats are blaming it on an incomplete proposal by the Republicans.

"So why did the House Republicans ... walk away from a deal that they had supposedly accepted and that would supposedly save our country from financial ruin. Why? [on screen: Virginia Representative Eric Cantor blaming the failure on Speaker Nancy Pelosi's 'partisan' speech before the vote]. ... What? The House Republicans are the hardest ball playing people in Washington. Pelosi must have thrown down some dag-nasty [on screen: excerpt of Pelosi's speech]. Owe (beep). Oh, yeah! That sounded like how you guys always talk to each other. The Republicans have feigned outrage over hyper partisan rhetoric they themselves perfected. Let's complete this with the daily double of the Democrats congratulating themselves for a job not done [on screen: Pelosi congratulating Democrats for working on the bill]. You failed. What is this, t-ball? Everybody gets a trophy? Isn't giving out easy credit what got us into this mess in the first place? Jesus!" --Jon Stewart

"The financial crisis
has actually helped Barack Obama's poll numbers. McCain's plan to suspend his
campaign and settle this has backfired on him. Think about it, no one should
benefit more from this than the McCain/Palin campaign. Sarah Palin could
actually wind up being the perfect candidate. If the world economy does
collapse, she's the only one who knows how to live off the land. You know? A
moose in every pot, et cetera." --Jimmy Kimmel
