Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.

Until I listened to listened to a congressional hearing (there was no baseball) on the AIG bailout. Technically, it was an “oversight” hearing. (In Congress, “oversight” means: “We sure missed that one!”)
But once they have their eye on the old ball, congressmen sure know how to tell us what’s going on. That’s why I hung on every word of the prepared statement by Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Mixmaster of Metaphors.
