Straw Shakedown

The main$tream punditry is shocked, shocked I tell you, at the Audacity™ of a $20 billion fund to fix the Gulf.

The usual suspects decry a socialist shakedown.

The reality is that the economic damage alone of what has happened and continues to be happening in the Gulf and elsewhere because of it easily dwarfs $20 billion.

But, chances are that all the handwringing about Whether He's Done Too Much, whether about the Gulf, the economy, or the War on Terra will continue in an attempt drown out the damage reports and the capitulation.
