I Am Become Soros--Destroyer Of Financial Worlds!

Mike Huckabee and blogger Frank Martin each question the timing of the markets’ current meltdown.

Oracle’s Larry Ellison has the right business mindset for a time like this, and as far as conspiracy theories, for the moment, I agree with one of Frank’s commenters, who quotes one of Charles Krauthammer’s aphorisms:

Krauthammer’s razor (with apologies to Occam): In explaining any puzzling Washington phenomenon, always choose stupidity over conspiracy, incompetence over cunning. Anything else gives them too much credit.

I agree–but I also reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks at a later date, once everything shakes out, as it inevitably will.
