"This is a package that is responsive to this massive gap." That's not a line from an upcoming bailout porno. That's how Peter Orszag, Obama's budget director, really talks! And he's not the only one.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs has also gone on, at length, about Obama's "package." All this dirty talk could really stimulate America! Air America radio hostess (and Wonkette emerita) Ana Marie Cox got hot and bothered watching Orszag, better known for his dry policy papers on Social Security, talk about the government's anti-recession spending plans on MSNBC. On this, there is bipartisan agreement: Even Obama's campaign opponent, Senator John McCain, says that "America needs the package."
