I found this snippet at the Common Room this morning in a post entitled, Does the President Understand the Math? Does He Care?
On the Washington Post: a new level in euphemism:

When I read the Washington Post quote, I couldn’t help but see the Dude Falling. Have you seen him? You really should. Be sure to watch the whole thing – it’s only about 40 seconds, and I think he does a fantastic impression of the current state and likely future of our economy.
