Getting to the Bottom of Things
You gotta laugh at the rhetorical flourish of Roosevelt Institute suggesting a Congressional-appointed inquiry commission is going to get to the bottom of the financial crisis. I mean, what are they going to discover that we don't already know? Maybe the commission can compile the high crimes, fraud and bribery over the last three decades in the White House and halls of Congress in a handy players program, but we can hardly expect restitution or prosecution from either of those bodies.
