From today's Times, and basically everywhere else too:
"...the Treasury secretary, Henry M. Paulson Jr., literally bent down on one knee as he pleaded with Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker, not to “blow it up...”
If my sources are correct, Nancy Pelosi was planning on exploding the world for some reason until Paulson came in and was like, "I love you, will you marry me?" and her San Fransican-values heart melted like gay butter.
Ok, enough nonsense. I'm not sorry to see the bailout get held up for a day or two, if only to keep it directly in the news cycle. Whether or not that will stoke public outrage remains to be seen, but the more attention focused on the lack of oversight in that bill, the better.
