never saw a day like today before; but of course there is no manipulation out there. [eye roll]

And how.

Unemployment matches a nine year high, calling into question the whole recovery angle, then the administration's economic team abruptly "resigns." I posted this at Dropout's but for those here, this represents the sum total of O'Neill's resignation letter:

"I hereby resign my position as secretary of the Treasury.

It has been a privilege to serve the nation during these challenging times. I thank you for that opportunity.

I wish you every success as you provide leadership and inspiration for America and for the world."


Now, maybe I'm not reading his letter with precision, but since O'Neill often spoke at length about whatever might be on his mind, brevity = rebuke. Thus, here's what I suspect was the full letter before his secretary edited it:

"I hereby resign my position as secretary of the Treasury, [you a$$holes].

It has been a privilege to serve the nation during these challenging times, [except for that political pig, Karl Rove]. I thank you for that opportunity.

I wish you every success as you provide leadership and inspiration for America and for the world. [At least you've forced me from office before the economy came utterly unglued: enjoy yourselves, fellas. I'm going home.]"
