Seems as if the players over at Saturday Night live might read American Thinker. This weekend they ran a skit that mentioned the fall of Wachovia, the finance crisis and the roles of Herb and Marion Sandler and George Soros (who they identified as the owner of the Democratic Party).
On September 29th, American Thinker published this article about the fall of Wachovia Bank and focused on the source of the problems: the bank's 24 billion dollar purchase of Golden West Financial, a California savings and loans chock full of ultra-risky adjustable rate mortgages.

This windfall has enabled them to join with their ally, George Soros, to fund a vast spectrum of left-wing advocacy groups that have empowered the Democratic party and the candidacy of Barack Obama.
