Comedic, political relief

The one upside of all the politicians speaking out about our economic crisis is that it is giving all the late night talk-show folks excellent material. I scouted the web and found some rather tasty morsels..and here we go.

When it comes to the economy, President Bush is no help at all. Like when reporters asked him today, what he thought about AIG, he said he got Showtime and HBO, but he really didn't get the whole package." –Jay Leno

The stock market crashed this week, but market analysts are not calling it a crash. They're calling it a 'correction.' Oh, shut up! A correction. You never hear that at NASCAR. 'Oh, we had a fiery correction on turn three. Four men are dead.'" --Jay Leno

"The Dow went up 410 points today on Wall Street. You may already know, the government has bailed two huge financial companies out, and today, they strongly hinted that they would bail the rest of them out, at taxpayers' expense. It's all part of a new approach our leaders in the White House and Congress are taking to the economy. It's called socialism." –Jimmy Kimmel

"The political campaign continues, of course, for the presidency. This Sunday, the entire hour of '60 Minutes' will be devoted to Barack Obama and John McCain. Yeah. Apparently, Barack Obama will be interviewed. John McCain will fill in for Andy Rooney." –Conan O'Brien

I could copy and paste for another hour or so. I am of the mindset that I would rather laugh than cry.

Those are pictures we'd all like to see without them being photoshopped.

I am not too worried because when you have nothing worth anything quantifiable in dollars there really isn't much this economy can do to you.

I fit into the "no quantifiable", gee, do I feel safe.
