Pithy Pence

Our 2nd District Rep. Mike Pence is getting some attention for his pithy quote on the bailout proposal:

"I must tell you, there are those in the public debate who have said that we must act now. The last time I heard that, I was on a used-car lot," said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Indiana. "The truth is, every time somebody tells you that you've got to do the deal right now, it usually means they're going to get the better part of the deal."

I don't know if he's the last remaining free-market capitalist left in Washington, but he's certainly one of the few. Mark Souder stopped being that a long time ago.

I guess selling out (Souder) was more capitalistic than staying the course (Pence), hmm?
