There's a certain amount of mythology built up around Glass-Steagall anyway; it wouldn't have stopped the meltdown because it didn't cover the part of the banking system where most of the shenanigans happened. Something like Glass-Steagall would be nice, but it would need to be expanded.
I still like Hillary's idea: for banks with assets over a given amount (say million), collect a tax on risky investments. It doesn't break up banks, but it does encourage the larger ones to not take stupid risks, or at least throw some money into the pot in case they need bailed out later. Or if a bank really really wants to take risks, they'll be encouraged to stay small.

You mean like a flock of Steagalls?

Am I the only one who thinks he looks like the suck-cut guy from Wayne's World?

He and Bobby Jindal should debate each other and whoever wins gets a President for a Day sash. The winner doesn't actually get to hold the office of President for one day, he just gets the sash. To wear for one day and then he has to give it back.

The next time I get chewed out for not doing my job properly, I'm going to try the, "Hey, give me a break. I had a lot on my plate." defense.

Yeah, I think your father dying is a good excuse if you work at Target and didn't get all the Tide stocked on the right shelf. If you're in fucking Congress you should know what the fuck is going on.
