A little levity from the Colbert Report with guest host Maria Bartiromo. My kids were watching this with me last night and loved it.

Memorable quote from Colbert:

Should I invest in paper bags for panicky people to breath in to until this thing blows over?

My attempt at Colbert paraphrasing – A free market should allow business to do whatever they want, including making a lot of bad decisions and then wait for the government to bail them out. But it is very important for business to make really big mistakes because the government only bails out the ones who screw up the most.

Sounds funny, but good grief, insanity still rules the night.
