The market was doing well today until a group of Republican senators said they would try to derail the auto bailout. Now what purpose that serves is beyond me. Everyone knows it will pass eventually but these creeps led by Alabama Senator Richard Shelby just want to engage in some political posturing. By the way does anyone else think that Shelby always looks pissed off and wears a particularly ugly expression? Well, I guess this is the face of the current GOP and makes clear why they lost so many senate seats last month.
