More Cooks, Better Broth

Barack Obama, fresh from announcing that unless his stimulus package is passed immediately the end of Western civilization is assured, decides to ask for more economics advice:
The Obama administration today announced a team of outside economic advisers, chaired by former Federal Reserve chairman Paul A. Volcker, to help sculpt a response to the deepening recession.

....In announcing the board this morning, Obama said he was seeking "to ensure that no stone is unturned as we work to put people back to work and to get our economy moving."

He added: "We will meet regularly so that I can hear different ideas and sharpen my own, and seek counsel that is candid and informed by the wider world."

Or, as the Red Queen put it, 'Sentence first. Verdict afterwards.'
