When something stinks this bad, even liberal hometown papers aren’t going to cover for you.

Despite the unseemly connections between Countrywide, Bank of America, and Chris Dodd, Dodd is steaming ahead with his bailout bill, putting at least $300 billion of taxpayer money at risk to support bad lenders. President Bush has threatened a veto, but an override is possible some Republicans, like Senator Richard Shelby, still support the bailout.
Please write or call Sen. Shelby at (202) 224-5744 and ask him to stop supporting the bailout. While you’re at it, please contact your own Representative and Senators. You’re not likely to see a more important fiscal issue this year.
