I spend one goddamned evening not paying attention to the news, and the news goes and pulls this shit on me.

Treasury, Hill leaders plan massive bailout

according to Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut, who, with quiverying double chin in tow, attended the Capitol Hill meeting with Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson:

“This is a very serious moment, very serious. It was a very sober gathering. I’ve been in the Senate for 28 years; Congress 34. There has never been a moment as serious as this one.”

tomorrow will be an interesting day.
