• Why did Big Government (BG) save AIG? Simple. If BG hadn't saved AIG, it would mean Armageddon and what's worse too many people would vote for Obama.
• But doesn't everybody hate BG? Not always. BG can be a friend to those who squander money like drunken sailors. Excuse me drunken bankers.
• Why didn't BG lend a helping hand to Lehman Brothers? BG decided to let our BC (British Cousins) do it. Hands across the sea and all that.
• So, is the financial crisis over? Not if the presidential candidates have anything to do with it.
