We now have at least one Senator on record with the dumbest spin imaginable regarding the bailout:
U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman said the massive government bailout of failing financial institutions is not only necessary but could make money for the federal government.
“The government could make 10 or 20 times what it pays on this, possibly,” Coleman said during a campaign stop at Christy’s Cafe in North Mankato Saturday morning.
And if I eat nothing but red meat, cheese, and milkshakes and smoke unfiltered pall malls, I could live 10 or 20 years longer than most people, possibly. I hope the Republicans run with that- “This isn’t a bailout, it is a once in a lifetime investment opportunity! And, you get a chance at winning a toaster!”
There is a reason this incumbent Senator is
losing to going to lose to… a comedian.
