What's the sound of no hands clapping?
As the stock market hits the biggest downturn since 9/11, the housing market reduces American private wealth the greatest amount since the Great Depression, the government bail-outs reach the highest amount ever, and the cost of the 100-year war sky-rocket, what does it mean when McCain describes the U.S. economy as "fundamentally sound"? What does it take for the economy to be fundamentally "unsound"? Do we need to wait until people are in supermarket lines with wheelbarrows full of money? And this is the man who will lead the nation? Say it ain't so-o-o-o!
