The crap sandwich has gone down the hatch. After Senate approval, the House bought the bailout bill 263-171. Unsurprisingly, my congressman voted to open wide. President Bush reportedly has just signed the bill.
UPDATE: Wall Street celebrates with a selloff. Dow falls 157 points. Well, that wasn’t supposed to happen, was it?
UPDATE II: Instapundit links to a summary video from the NRCC, who must be clawing at this vote like a lifeline from heaven (I’m relieved to see somebody with election-related clout has woken up and decided to run with this…John McCain, call your office):
Actually, I’m fairly impressed with how Rep. Artur Davis (D-AL) appears to have come clean (and fairly glad that the NRCC gave him credit for it, even if only to show the contrast to his colleagues).
UPDATE III: Allahpundit’s got ahold of the ad, and his thirst for blood is rising.
