Yeah. If you read all the way to the end of the ABC story, then you got the news that it was all legal, that there was nothing unusual about it, and that many Americans park money in the Caymans and pay taxes on it.

The people who park money in the Caymans and don't pay US taxes are, quote, unquote, foreigners. But investing in the Caymans is like investing in Montana. It's like investing anywhere else. It's after-tax dollars that you put there, and you invest, and they grow, and ABC points all this out. So here's what I think. Here's what I think was going on. I think that ABC, in a race with NBC to curry favor with Obama, and to also hold onto the mantel of taking out Republicans. Remember it was ABC and Brian Ross, our old buddy ABC and Brian Ross who took out Mark Foley over the page stuff in 2006. Well, we haven't heard from him much since. They don't investigate Democrats. And so now it's the Republican primary and then we got this mess out of Iowa where it looks like Santorum won it. There are eight caucus areas where they just said, "Ah, to hell with it. We don't know where the votes are. We agreed here that before the end of this thing was over that Romney's gonna be the winner."
