Not a good news day for The One

First, stock markets are rocketing, with the local fishwrapper reporting the largest one-day increase in the Dow since the Great Depression. Second, oil is tanking with the per-barrel price at $80 and falling. Third, ABC reports the Florida congressman who replaced Mark Foley is busted for paying off his mistress. Pelosi's statement yesterday:to the effect of "I heard about it for the first time today" does not square with reports that Rahm Emmanuel has been working with Mahoney to keep it from affecting Mahoney re-election bid. The GOP attacks ads practically write themselves . . .

Via Drudge, ABC, and PilotOnline.
