Et tu Nancy?

Politico reports: “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has ordered a broad, swift investigation of Wall Street and will demand testimony from Bush administration officials and captains of finance, congressional officials said.”

How about a broad and swift investigation of Congress’s role in the meltdown? Why were our legislators dozing while financial wizards built mountains of fantastical paper profits that are suddenly crumbling into a pile of ashes? How many millions of dollars have legislators been paid over the last twenty years to turn a blind eye to the scheming?

Any idiot with a calculator (or any idiot reading this blog for that matter) could see this all coming. See some posts here, here, here, here, here, here, here.

Asked whether she bears any responsibility for the debacle, Pelosi said “no.” I guess she’d give the same answer to the question “can you read?”
