A Little Housing-Bubble Rant From The OC

Some righteous words in the OC Weekly's Commie Girl column, including a slap of housing-bubble reality:
It’s been so bizarre watching the out-of-the-blue hoo-hah as the House Republicans swoop down on OC’s homegrown, nutsy, nasty, anti-immigrant rhetoric. It’s not like they have anything else they could be talking about: the president’s numbers are—how you say?—in the shitter, seeing as how Iraq’s roiling with civil war; they managed to lose an entire American city; our economy’s being propped up by China, Saudi Arabia and folks spending their low-interest second mortgages like lobbyists at a DeLay fund-raiser while we’re in the midst of a housing bubble just aching to pop; it turned out to be the White House that had leaked CIA-operative-on-nuclear-proliferation Valerie Plame’s non-official cover after promising, OJ-like, to find and fire the real leaker; the entire GOP leadership seems headed to the slammer (and disgraced Tom DeLay’s “reformer” replacement, John Boehner, once saw fit to hand out his buddies’ checks from tobacco lobbyists on the House floor); and—oh yeah—we’re probably not going to nuke Iran.

So what’s the entire nation nattering on and on about?

Brown people.

Damn, the Republicans are good.
