Daily Kos' Scout Finch is Twittering Congress' spank-down of AIG's CEO Edward Liddy — currently in progress — and I'll be honest with you and mention that most of this economic stuff makes my eyes roll backward in my skull out of sheer confusion and my opinions change approximately every 32 seconds.
But this Tweet from Scout amused me and put things into a slightly sharper focus…
Wall Street to America: I drink your milkshake…..I drink it up!
That, I understand. It's from that movie No Country for Old Men, right? The Michael Clayton character says it to that smart-talkin' pregnant teen girl just after she climbs out of the fountain, right?
Yeah, I thought so. I'm clever.
(While we're on the subject, here's Scout's post from Sunday on what the hell's going on with Twitter all of a sudden.)
