What's your FICO score, Uncle Sam?

From a Reuters story on the Web:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pressure is building on the pristine "AAA" rating of the United States after a federal bailout of American International Group Inc, the chairman of Standard & Poor's sovereign ratings committee said on Wednesday.

Read the rest of the sad story here, and then consider that the story came out before announcement of the big bailout, which may run a trillion dollars. I can come up with a thing or two that might be better bought for a trillion dollars. Just think, W wanted to put Social Security in the hands of the people who've brought us this debacle.
