Heartache: Eric Cantor* supporting bailout-palooza as well.

I must say, I like Eric Cantor*. I agree with him in most situations. But this time, he’s just plain wrong:

During an election season when many Republicans had tried to distance themselves from Bush, Cantor[*] said most lawmakers were taking cues from Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. and were eager to act quickly on the plan.

“We have to do something to make sure our capital markets remain viable and remain robust,” said Rep. Eric I. Cantor[*], R-7th.

*The Democratic National Committee would like me to remind you that Eric Cantor (7th-VA) is a Jew, just like Jack Abramoff.

Rob Wittman is supporting bailout-palooza.

Of course he is. He also manages to prove that he doesn’t know jack about economics.

I mean come on, you didn’t seriously expect him to find any budget cuts (as he promised) to pay for those $132,500,000 in earmarks that he requested, did you?

Now he’s supporting a $700,000,000,000 bailout proposal (I think that’s the right amount of zeros).

You know, I don’t know jack about economics (don’t really care to, either), but at least I know to keep my mouth shut about the situation.
