Brother, Can You Spare $85,000,000,000?

The Federal government has agreed to an $85 billion bailout of insurance giant AIG. The company had taken a major hit since it was heavily into insuring mortgages.

$85 billion!?!?!?! WTF!?!?!?! And what do you suppose my chances would be if I marched up to the Treasury Department tomorrow morning and asked for a $300 loan so I could get caught up on my credit cards?

Yeah, that's what I thought....
