Shouting Fire

Take a look at this Drudge front page, all red and crazy. Over a CNBC commentary? It’s obvious that Drudge, like Rush Limbaugh, is rooting for Obama to fail. But this sort of, well, crap, is downright pestilential. Real human beings have real investments–401ks, homes, small businesses–that are on the line. Again and again, I’m infuriated by those in the media who somehow don’t understand that this crisis is real and can become worse. You can quibble all you want with Obama’s stimulus plan or bank bailout or, in this case, his home mortgage relief plan, but I simply have no patience at all with those who aren’t praying for these programs to succeed.
