Wild day, no deal

OK, back to the bad news. Via Politico.com,

A high-profile White House meeting on Treasury’s $700 billion Wall Street rescue plan ended on a sour, contentious note Thursday after animated exchanges among lawmakers laced with presidential politics just weeks before the November elections.

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson came up to the Capitol hours later to revive talks, but House Republicans did not participate, and Democrats warned that the whole process could collapse unless President Bush gets them to come to the table.

Yes, folks, our government at work.

Not that I really want them to hurry it up. If we have to have one, I’d rather a good one which takes a long time than one hurriedly cobbled together by sleep-deprived congress people.
