Credit markets are functioning just fine, here and all over the world, despite the hysterical Keynesian propaganda. Only the prudent and creditworthy can get loans, of course, but why should it be any other way? We’re in trouble party because it wasn’t. So why, then, are Beranke, Paulson, and the rest of the gang lying? To attempt to justify their ripping the rest of us off for the state’s favored big banks. It’s business as usual, in other words, in the District of Parasites. (Thanks to Brad Funkhouser)
