I hope the Obama campaign doesn't get rid of the Big Bird ad--it's cute. And why does the right want to take down PBS anyway? Big Bird is a miniscule portion of the federal budget, but then many of our fellows have problems with addition and subtraction. Hmm. We really need Big Bird.
And while Sheila Bair has her disagreements with many of her fellow regulators,
she.really.really.doesn't.like.Timothy.Geithner. It's too bad, though, that she didn't have a better editor, as it is possible to explain complex economic topics without being nearly so wordy. And she's wrong on Social Security, but that's pretty common among almost all Republicans and most Democrats.
