Weighing a Bailout for Bernie

Do you think the very same Republicans who voted against saving U.S. auto makers because they have written contracts with their blue collar employees would approve a bailout of Wall Street tycoon Bernie Madoff?

On the positive side, Bernie makes things. On the negative side, what he makes are Ponzi schemes. But on the positive side again, he doesn't pay union wages, he wears a suit and tie, and he works on Wall Street.

That's four positives to one negative. Hands down, Bernie would win billions if the G.O.P. was in charge of Congress.
