"I would encourage him to read the President's plan. . .I'd be more than happy to have him come here and read it. I'd be happy to buy him a cup of coffee. Decaf." -- White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs today, referring to CNBC's resident wingnut Rick "Call Me A Dick" Santelli, who went on an on-air rant against Obama's housing rescue proposal on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and who clearly hadn't read Obama's plan.
Santelli's shriek-fest was a classic in social Darwinist, every man for himself thought, the kind that motivated the greed on Wall Street and among Call Me A Dick's derivative trader associates. Later, when asked who he voted for on Tweety's Hardball show, Call Me A Dick" replied, "I voted for Mr. McCain." So he would have voted to stay with the Rethuglican economic programs and philosophy that got us into this mess. Quite an expert.
