MC FogHorn Leghorn and the F’N MA

With record high foreclosures due to predatory lenders and sham mortgages, who's in favor of a taxpayer bailout to the Federal National Mortgage Assoc.? Or how about public monies to save the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation? No takers? The homeowners are still screwed, but the lenders need our help. They're shareholder owned, government sanctioned monopolies, and they need 25 billion. No sympathetic alms? Good thing both the FNMA and the FHLMC, appointed themselves the intentionally endearing nicknames Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to confuse our affections. 3852
