Hey, maybe if we're lucky Bush'll screw us like he did with the most recent Supreme Court nominee!

What's the matter, Maine Man? Don't you believe?

It'll be interesting to see what happens. A Fed Chair can't do much to auickly improve an economy - but he can quickly screw it up.

WHat do you look for?
