The Place is Haunted, but ... Another Ghoul has Left the Building


This place is haunted, I tell you.

I put up this post yesterday and the internets rejected it ... kicked it back twice. Perhaps it was because I included a pic of one of my favorite reporters from Fox News. Who knows? But I took it as a sign from On High. Scared straight. That would be me.

Speaking of vanishing/fleeing/sinking things ...

Larry Summers, chief economic adviser for Pres. Obama, has decided to call it quits at the end of year, in a triumphant conclusion to his work in curing America's economic woes in less than six months and without spending any stimulus dollars. GNN has dubbed Summers the "Reagan of Economics," for his ability to solve intractable economic problems "without firing a shot."

Larry Summers is gone with a whimper, not a bang.

The recently deposed Car Czar/GM CEO has a new book out that he was touting on The Today Show yesterday with Matt Laur. Showing his grear economic insight he felt hat GM's new economic was working well and they had paid back the American taxpayer.---WRONG---GM paid us back with another TARP loan and GMAC bailout bucks. He also stated that Obummer could not have gotten through this economic crisis without Sommers and Geitner. The very same evening Sommers is gone; the third BO econ. policy team to jump ship. Only Geitner, who shares BO's redistributionist schemes survives. I haveit from reliable sources that the National Security Advisor, Mr. Johnson I believe, is the next to go. The great One cannot take advice and despises the slightest oppositon to his ideology. A Stalinist purge is at work.

Larry summers is a lousy Reagen. Reagenomics worked and Summersnomics don't. Glad they are going.

He looks to be as successful at this job as he was at his last job. In fairness, losing his last job was actually a good thing... or, he was fired for the wrong reason. Though most of those in his profession should be fired, just not for the reason he was fired. I wonder if he is actually "leaving" this job because he suggested too many truths or if he is "leaving" because his quality of judgment and reason fits his profession... which, of course, doesn't seem to work when applied near anything that is supposed to, well, actually work?

I could go on, but that should suffice? It is so fun to talk about such well educated men though. Another day. I am most certain there will be more such men and days.

Scott, yes, you mean TurboTax Tim ...

Star, every now and then I make a joke. Roll with it, man. I knew Reagan. Reagan was a friend of mine ... Summers ...

And Doom, yes, I see you working again. I am hopeful that Nov. 2 is one such date.

That was a test flight of the new Internet Neutrality Fairness software protocol DC. DHS computers were waiting for a nutroot at DU to post a another anti-Bush rant before your post could be allowed to leave the launch pad.
