Let's just say, (like the Telecommunications act), there's plenty of blame 
to go around.

Finding one boogey man doesn't quite cover it.

I dont think it's a completely "absurd notion" that people who borrowed more 
than they could afford are partly to blame.

There's a comment I've heard in the investing world....when things start to 
not make sense, it's time to step back.

Why anyone would sign up for an "interest only" mortgage is beyond me.

I think if you want to see that right-wing talk radio still has an 
influence, just look at how people are parroting back all the lines almost 
verbatim about the fairness doctrine.
