pretty please with a cherry on top?

What do NASCAR, wool, rum, and wooden arrows for children have in common?

They're all part of a "Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top" plea to Congress to pass the bailout, er, I mean Rescue Plan for Wall Street.

Dude, check it. I bet you're a card-carrying Democrat, right?

It was the House Republicans who resisted the Bush-Pelosi bailout. They held out for as long at they could, heroically.

Back in the '90s, it was Clinton and the Congressional Democrats who allowed Freddie May and Freddie Mac to relax loan standards to help poor people get mortgages--a laudable goal but one which resulted in "reverse-redlining," with banks preying on vulnerable minority customers, and an avalanche that just began to fall.

They allowed the "risky" loans, which by definition are loans that will probably fail, resulting in losses of home and credit.

Though I'm an left-leaning independent, it's pretty clear that the Democrats got us into this problem. 'Course, we all hate Bush so he makes a great scapegoat!
