Matt Bevin, who is challenging Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell in a Republican primary, calls the 2008 federal bailout of banks and Wall Street giants "irresponsible" and says he would have opposed it as a senator. Yet back in 2008, as an investment fund president, Bevin backed the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program, as well as the government takeover of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Bevin has made McConnell's support for TARP the centerpiece of his challenge to the powerful incumbent senator. But in a letter for his investment fund, Bevin wrote, "Most of the positive developments have been government led, such as the effective nationalization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the passage of the $700 billion TARP (don't call it a bailout) and the Federal Reserve's intention to invest in commercial paper. ... The government actions to date have been reasonably swift and substantial. The Federal Reserve seems to understand the magnitude of the problem and the underlying issues involved."
This is Olga Graf. She's a Russian long-track speed skater who won an Olympic bronze medal Sunday in the 3,000-metres. She's also proof that adrenaline can make you do crazy things.
After her final skate to secure a spot on the podium, in the midst of her jubilation, Graf decided to cool off the quickest way she could think of.
She unzipped her suit.
