The entire U.S. economy collapsed today after the House of Representatives decided not to give Hank Paulson a big stack of borrowed Chinese money to throw at Wall Street. This latest development in the terribly boring economic saga raises three very important questions:
1. Will we all be squatting in foreclosed McMansions next week?
2. Will we be forced to eat dirt cookies for sustenance?
3. Will they have free wi-fi at the bread lines for those of us that haven't yet pawned our laptops to make ends meet?
P.S. Also, this is all Nancy Pelosi's fault! [Wall Street Journal]
