Rat Poison

That's what they're feeding us.

James Ostrowski at Lew Rockwell wrote this the other day:

I'm beginning to smell a rat. I wonder if the fix is in. They do this a lot.

Have they intentionally put out a really lousy bailout plan to allow "critics" to propose changes when the real deal was to enact the "critics'" plan in the first place?

Now it's being reported in Roll Call that the bailout plan has been in the works for months.

[Tony] Fratto [White House Press Secretary] insisted that the plan was not slapped together and had been drawn up as a contingency over previous months and weeks by administration officials. He acknowledged lawmakers were getting only days to peruse it, but he said this should be enough.

The question remaining is, which phase of the plan are we in now?

Is this the initial stage, which Mr. Ostrowski suspects?
Wherein something unbelieveably odius is proposed,
knowing it will be rejected.
Knowing there will be counter proposals that try to
compromise off of pure evil?

A compromise with the devil is still a deal with the devil.
