I'm So Glad I Never Planned to Vote For this Guy
John McCain is a demagogic lunatic. Imagining him as president in a crisis is terrifying.
UPDATE: Stephen Bainbridge saves me the trouble of explaining [via Megan McArdle, who has more.] I will also note that private equity funds and hedge funds, which aren't subject to all this wonderful regulation, appear to be doing better than the rest of the financial world.
UPDATE 2: McCain is even crazier and more clueless than I thought, as Robert George explains.
