Devil's Advocate

Here's how to effectively oppose the bailout. I don't even drive a car, but there's a gas station within sight of my house. Gas is down fifty cents a gallon here over the last month. It's going to fall further soon, now that oil is plumbing new lows. The truth of the matter is that the bailout is not designed only to enrich Wall Street execs the minute they scrape their knee, but to keep oil prices up so the oil companies and our friends in the Middle East don't get angry, too!

Obviously not true, but if someone care to polish that statement, I'd bet a lot of people would believe it.
