This is an excerpt from Michael Winship's piece from, appearing in his essay on Roosevelt, posted earlier on this blog. I think it's kind of profound.

"In these bailouts, there is no altruism but cynicism, the same attitude that scorns the Constitution and tramples civil liberties, that uses national tragedy to advance an unrelated global agenda, that doesn't give a damn as it tries to game and subvert the electoral process because deep down it fundamentally disdains democracy. Winning isn't everything; it's the only thing."
