Well, so much for Wild Kingdom, back to Wild Wall Street.

With the US economy hanging by a tenuous thread from crashing and burning into a total meltdown, it's a source of amazement and frustration to me that there are still many Americans who seem oblivious to the fact that the GOP thugs and thieves they're so feverishly supporting were the very architects of this disaster. But that might be changing as the gravity of the situation sinks in:
"A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll suggests that by a 2-to-1 margin, Americans blame Republicans over Democrats for the financial crisis that has swept across the country the past few weeks — one factor that may have contributed to an apparent increase in Barack Obama’s edge over John McCain in the race for the White House.

In the new survey, released Monday afternoon, 47 percent of registered voters questioned say Republicans are more responsible for the problems currently facing financial institutions and the stock market, with 24 percent saying Democrats are more responsible. One in five of those polled blame both parties equally, and 8 percent say neither party is to blame."

And the rest blame it all on Clinton. Ack! You only wish I was kidding.
