Quote of the Day II: Oooh! A 'Commission!'

A nice riposte by Megan McArdle to McCain's brilliant idea, released yesterday, of -- gasp! -- creating a "Commission!" (Blue Ribbon, no doubt) to address our looming economic crisis:

"Here's my modest suggestion: John McCain could convene a commission right now. He could get a bunch of economists and bankers together, and they could hash out the problem and present him with a plan. Then he could tell us what it is. Then we could decide if we liked it. It would be almost like this election was about selecting someone who will make good policy."
