Jesus, look at the economy

We are so fucked.

From Le Grande Orange (not this one, the other one)

John Cole nails it:

The total national debt, as I write this, is $9,679,000,000,000.00 (nine and a half trillion).

The Budget for 2008 is close to $3,000,000,000,000.00 (three trillion).

Our budget deficit for this year is going to range in between
$400-500,000,000,000.00 (four hundred to five hundred billion, give or
take a few billion).

The total value of earmarks in 2008 will be approximately $18,000,000,000.00 (eighteen billion).

In other words, when McCain talks about earmarks, he is talking
about 3% of our annual budget deficit, .6% of our annual budget, and a
number too small to even report when discussing our national debt. Or,
put another way, he is talking about two months in Iraq, something he
wants to keep going indefinitely.

Not only are they lying about Palin’s involvements with earmarks,
they are just not being serious about the horrible economic problems we
face. These are not serious people.
