“Main Street” has residents now, too

Hooray, the bailout passed.

But, really…enough with the canned cliches!  Yglesias agrees, but unfortunately, the person who gets to give the big speech after this legislative accomplishment apparently does not.

Pelosi hailed a bill she said was addressing real financial hardships faced by “Mr. and Mrs. Jones” on Main Street. In approving the bill, she said lawmakers would be helping their constituents and neighbors.

“While the focus has been on the Dow Jones and Wall Street, we have dealt with the real Mr. and Mrs. Jones of Main Street,” Pelosi said.

If the Jones’ are also guilty of spitting out hackneyed, misleading, and very overworn metaphors, then I just cannot keep up with them.
