But remember, the most important issue of this election is whether Barack Obama condemns his pastor vigorously enough. Otherwise, white people might get scared and will be forced to vote for another crazy, incompetent white guy who will make things even worse.
UPDATE: Wow. This is a pretty big interest rate cut:
The Federal Reserve, continuing an aggressive series of actions to try and right the struggling economy, cut a key short-term interest rate three-quarters of a point Tuesday for the sixth time in six months.
The central bank cut the federal funds rate, which is used as a benchmark for a wide variety of business and consumer loans, for the third time this year and the sixth time since the economy began to sputter last fall.
The move comes after a tumultuous week in the financial markets that has seen the Fed, under Chairman Ben Bernanke to inject itself in unprecedented fashion, helping to engineer a takeover of venerable Wall Street investment bank Bear Stearns, which collapsed under the weight of bad mortgage-related securities.
The problem with these sorts of steep rate cuts, of course, is that eventually the Fed will run out of bullets in its arsenal. The Treasury Department and Congress are going to have to do something as well. If ever there was a good time to impeach Bush to prevent him from further fouling things now, it would be now.
