On the way over to Lynchburg today, I was stuck alone with the radio ("Oh, God!" I thought, "not that!") and I sneaked the dial over to the talk station, avoiding the public radio fund drive, sports talk and some really, really bad Top 40 of various types. I picked up, first a guy named Bortz and then the grating, high-pitched, snarling, slobbering rantings of somebody named Laura Ingram where I found a nice little irregularity.
These right-wingers were all over the Obama economic package--screaming "socialism" at every opportunity--but it wasn't what they said that moved me. It was what one of their sponsors said. One of their most persistent was a company that was trying to attract customers who had a problem with maxed-out or overdrawn credit cards. They offered to help these people qualify for individual bailout money from the Obama plan.
I don't even know where to go with that.
