Money, so they say, is the root of all evil today.

Paul Krugman is unhappy about the “Geithner plan.”

But what difference does it make what the plan is? Banks were looted, and now they need to be funded again. The looters can’t be held responsible (bar a revolution), because they are the Patriciate, so the money should come from the Commoners. These are the facts of the matter.

The rest is pure politics; just a question of how to best organize and sell it to the public. Every used car salesman has his own favorite trick;  it is irrelevant how exactly he manages to convince you to buy that piece of junk.
