The House of Representatives came to agreement on Monday afternoon on the establishment of a 9/11-styled commission that would be independent of Congress and granted the power of subpoena to investigate the origins of the financial crisis.

Gee, can you imagine all the brain power, not to mention hot air, that will be brought to bear on this pressing issue?  And the icing on top of the cake will be that it will be styled after the uber-accurate 9/11 Commission.

I can just hear the conclusions:

  • There was no financial crisis
  • And even if there was, the economy went to hell at free-fall speed, the way all economies collapse.
  • Blaming the bankers, regulators, and Congress is just conspiracy theory.
  • Dick Cheney was reportedly at an ATM when the economy hit the fan.
  • We’d like to share the evidence with you but it was shipped to China for shredding.
  • Christie Whitman has already stated that breathing shredder fumes is not bad for you.
  • Arlen Specter (R/D?, PA) has advanced a Single Bank Theory to account for the collapse.
  • George Bush wants us to know he has an alibi: he was in school, where a class of second graders was trying to explain Winnie the Pooh to him, when the first bank fell.

it’s like shooting fish in a barrel…

Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) has reintroduced legislation that would require the Federal Communications Commission to treat ads for Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs as indecent, meaning they could be legally aired only between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

I agree.  They’re *$&#ing obscene.  But then again, so is Moran.
