The Republicans' willingness to stay tight with Wall Street after the near total stock market and financial sector meltdown of 2008, and yet again yesterday, tells me th party of Big Business still prefers Wall Street donations and inflexible ideology over common sense.
The Dems may yet avoid a 2010 massacre in November; if they do, they ought to strike a medal with Mitch McConnell's face on the front. Maybe Big Spending RNC chairman Michael Steele on the obverse?
