Ol Phat Stu has done it again. Here's his suggestion raising cash money for the bailout:
SELL ALASKA BACK TO THE RUSSIANS FOR $700 BILLION--AND INCLUDE THE WHOLE PALIN FAMILY!!
Why didn't we think of that earlier? It's not as if the Palins have been all gung-ho about having Alaska remain as part of the USA.
Meanwhile....(in case you trust BushCo to do the right thing)
