It’s the new political small talk: you’re too stupid to disagree with me.
From Sen. Hillary Clinton:
“We should also put in place a temporary moratorium on foreclosures and freeze rate hikes in adjustable-rate mortgages. We’ve got to stem the tide of failing mortgages and give the markets time to recover.”
“The time for ideological, partisan arguments against these actions is over.”
Of all the false choices, we are now being told we have to bail out bankers who can’t do banking or homeowners who can’t do homeownership, or both. And if we disagree we are ideological and partisan?
Anyway, it’s the end of the world, isn’t it? Perhaps not.
