Transparent as Tin Foil

Word came last night at 11.37 CDT (yeah, I was up) that Congress has reached a deal on the financial bailout. Two comments:

1. It sure didn't look like it from their sour pusses.
2. No details of the bill were discussed.

Newt Gingritch has it EXACTLY RIGHT (from the Atlanta Journal Constitution):

The former Georgia congressman also demanded that the final version of be bill be posted on the Internet for 24 hours before Congress votes on the package.

“That will let you flush out the kind of hidden, secret deals that crop up, that the press finds two weeks after something’s been voted on,” he said.

He's absolutely should be posted for 24 hours just so the public can see what kind of pork they are trying to load up in this bill.
