Obama and Guy Fawkes were friends

By Capt. Fogg

Subject: 3 Men who brought down Wall Street

It appeared in this morning's e-mail.

Be sure to read the "where they are now"!!

Here is a quick look into 3 former Fannie Mae executives who have brought down Wall Street.

It continues with a long narrative about Franklin Raines, Tim Howard, and Jim Johnson; the first two of Fanny Mae and the last of Lehman Brothers. I won't go into the accusations; they aren't important and they aren't the point of this latest dropping from the great anus of the Republican Underground.

Where they're supposed to be now is what this is all about, and, no, they are not now all top advisers to Barack Obama, as this cynical screed screams. They don't work for him, but lobbyists for Wall Street do work for McCain. It's just another lie provided to flesh out the bizarre accusation made by John McCain that the Credit Crisis is all Obama's fault.

Doubtless someone will believe it because they want to have a reason to rant and rave and threaten and they want to distract from the fact that the party of George Bush had a hand in this, that the party of George Bush denied there was any weakness until hours before the Ship of State hit the iceburg.

Perhaps this one will show up in your in-box, too. Anyone who will send you this will send you others insisting that Obama and Trotsky went to school together and so Obama's a communist or that Obama sunk the Maine and two of our battleships at Pearl Harbor. Wait for it.
