Your Bailout Package: The Fine Print

Here's a little bit of text from section 8 of the bailout legislation - of which the president says we cannot afford to delay the passage.

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.
Seriously? If for no other reason, the idea that these guys believe, after everything else that's happened, that they deserve to spend $700 billion taxpayer dollars in the next three months with no oversight at all ought to make this bill a nonstarter. Fuck Hank Paulson and the horse he rode in on. Fuck that guy in the eye.
