Chris Dodd's Hypocrisy

Obama's stimulus package, passed last night, is "Viagra for the leviathan state," writes Jonah Goldberg in today's Post. "Not only are we nationalizing the banks, but the legislators overseeing the banking industry regulate about as well as I play the left-handed harpsichord." Goldberg reserves his harshest critique for banking committee chairman Chris Dodd, who defied Obama to sneak a last-minute pay cut for executives into the final stimulus bill. The Connecticut senator "should be testifying before his own committee in an orange jumpsuit in exchange for early release; instead, he's spewing righteous indignation about the malfeasance of the people who used to buy him lunch," snarls Goldberg.
