Midnight Dingleberries

Greek unrest sparks fears of similar outbreaks across Europe

…while Reuters plays it down. Interesting.

Salon also tries to make the auto industry bailout about the Unions (and remember, it’s not like I’m anti-union. For shits’ sake, I’m a Marxist)

And the GOP absolutely buys into the Dems straw man argument.

Really, watching the so-called big two go at it? It’s like watching kids squabble in kindergarten.

Just to muddy the waters further, the UAW blames the GOP for scuttling the bailout.
:: head scratch ::
Okay, no, I’m not as naive as all that – the UAW is worried about their industry going belly up and suddenly, no business = no union, no union = no job. I get that. Doesn’t mean the companies should be any more entitled to special treatment. Sorry. File under “more partisan political bullshit.”
(Because really that’s what you came here for, to see me dismiss this nonsense with a wave of four letter invective. Admit it.)

This article, however, makes me happy. Mostly the one bit. “…the political nature of the House and Senate, which have just concluded a typically unimpressive year.” You can say THAT again. Honestly though the whole article is fresh and very very true.
