After one spectacular failure, the $700 billion financial industry bailout found a second life Wednesday, speeding toward passage in the Senate and gaining ground in the House where conservative opposition seemed to soften.

Lovely. So instead of just a $700 billion bill, we now have one with added "sweeteners". (Read: pork.) I'm sure glad we have politicians looking out for us. :\
