Actually, in the "movie script" version of the bailout, Bush calls in both candidates and the congressional leaders two weeks ago and says, "I have a couple nookular bombs hidden in the US and if I set them off I can declare martial law and make myself decider-for-life! But considering how badly I have already screwed up the country, decider-for-life isn't as attractive a job as it was 8 years ago, so tell ya what I'm gonna do! You help me rip off the taxpayers for a cool trillion, launder it through a bunch of foreign banks pretending to be stuck with a lot of bad US mortgages, and I'll leave in January, move down to that little piece of land I bought in South America and start my own nation. I'll call it Bush Country! BWAH HA HA HA HA, sorry, little joke there. So, whadya say; we have a deal???"
