Sleight of Hand

I have to admit I was suckered.  I bit.  Hook line and sinker.  DAMN it!  When I saw the headline I should have known:

Senate Dems Aim to Curb Fed’s Powers

But instead I clicked through.  And got suckered yet again:

WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats on Tuesday proposed stripping the Federal Reserve of its supervisory powers

WOW!  Virginia and New Jersey really got to these guys!

My excitement and wonderment lasted, ohh, about 14 words; and that’s counting “Washington”

and creating instead three new federal agencies to police banks, protect consumers and dismantle failing institutions.

Doh!  I should’ve known!  In fact, I’m pissed I missed it.  I mean, really?  A Democrat trying to reduce the size of government? Sheesh.
