Something to keep an eye on

When the $700 billion financial bailout plan was first proposed, conservative pundits were up in arms about it. They hated it, they found it socialistic, and they were angry at the Bush administration for proposing it. In the last few days, though, they seem to have found a way around their cognitive dissonance. I've heard right-wing talk show hosts referring to it as "the Democrat bailout plan."

Keep an eye on this talking point. They're going to try to pin the blame for this expensive, unpopular bailout on tax-and-spend Democrats, even though it's a more restrained version of the bill the Bush Administration originally proposed.
