Bring in the Clowns

There it was, right on the front page of my morning paper, a direct quote from one of our brilliant Utah politicians commenting on a proposed bailout of national financial institutions:

"I don't believe this crisis has been caused by an unregulated market. In fact, the free market probably hasn't been given enough of a chance to perform."--Congressman Rob Bishop

No wonder we so often are the laughingstock of the Nation.

Here, here!!
The "market" in this case is the debt/credit market; so, is our brilliant representative saying that there just hasn't been enough people and businesses allowed to go into debt to make the whole thing work right?

Congrats on the book, Mr. Klade.
