In Passing

Might as well “leave this one standing”

Via:  Ace

“Well, so much for that...!” Dept:

Senator Shelby Channels Charlie Brown (HT: Cicero):
...The top Republican on the Senate Banking committee, said he has assurances that Democrats will adjust his banking regulation bill to address concerns that it perpetuates bailouts.
“Assurances.”  Su-u-u-u-u-re he does!

(Explanation of the title below the break.)

(In the (ancient) days of hand-set type, newspapers would disassemble each day’s pages after printing. But often the type which had been set for recurring items– the masthead, section headers, and the like– would be “left standing” for future use. Reporters frequently joke that some headlines– “Congressman Caught In Love Nest,” “Mayor Indicted,” “Storms Pound Area”– appear often enough that they should be left standing, as well. Here’s an addition to the list, at least until the next election.)

The only solution is to throw the bastards out in November.

The only solution short of tar, feathers, rails and rope, anyway.
