Bernanke has chucked some bodies of bankers out of the balloon and printed enough dollars to completely paper over Jupiter. They want to bolster McCain long enough for him to take office.
It's a game of decreasing gains and with each dollar printed they're all worth less to anybody else on the planet.
They're an evil people and they love to indulge in holidays from reality. The stress of the past week was more than they could bear.
Reality has a way of returning like a boomerang, with a vengeance.
