I've been waiting for an applicable time to use my favorite quote from Gone Baby Gone, and now I think I've found it... First, the quote:

"You fat, busted cunt. You put a gun on me you better use it." - Bubba

You can see the well delivered line at 3:05 of this clip:

So how is this relevant? Well, I'm hammering Hank Paulson with this quote right now. No more talking about how "if people know you have a bazooka in your pocket you won't have to use it," and how you and the rest of the G7 will "use all available tools" and "take all necessary steps," to quell the issues in the financial system.
No more talking. Do it. You put a gun on me you better use it.
Speaking of talking - 1-2Knockout has a tremendous post, which is really just a reprint of a very accurate satirical rant from the Wall Street Journal. A taste:
And now, America, we introduce the Great Obama! The world's most gifted political magician! A thing of wonder. A thing of awe. Just watch him defy politics, economics, even gravity!...For his next trick, the Great Obama will jumpstart the economy, and he'll do it by raising taxes on the very businesses that are today adrift in a financial tsunami! That will include all those among the top 1% of taxpayers who are in fact small-business owners, and the nation's biggest employers who currently pay some of the highest corporate tax rates in the developed world. Mr. Obama will, with a flick of his fingers, show them how to create more jobs with less money. It's simple, really. He has a wand.
It's definitely worth a read.
