The Boy and I figured at the current odds, it was a good time to buy McCain. He’s at about 1-to-6 on Intrade. So I create an account and try to fund it–but am informed that my bank refused, apparently due to some recent Congressional shenanigans.
I’m soooo glad they’re here to protect me. What would I do without their wisdom?
Meanwhile $700B gets thrown around–and wasted—on a dubious prospect. I guess it’s okay to gamble with my money as long as they’re doing it.
