This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Bill Maher, host of “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, calls in at 6:20am to talk about his new documentary, Religulous, which opens this weekend.

Dems and GOP on Capitol Hill immediately blamed each other for the failure of a $700 billion bailout package in the house on Monday. The package, which was backed by both the Dem and GOP Congressional leadership as well as President Bush, failed in the house by a vote of 228-205.

Investors continued to dump shares this morning after U.S. lawmakers unexpectedly rejected a Wall Street bailout plan, triggering the largest point drop in U.S. market history. Stocks in Europe opened sharply lower – after big losses yesterday – while many Asian markets fell near the end of the trading day. The U.S. stock market was down 777 points at closing yesterday.

Barack Obama blasted Congress for not passing a financial rescue package yesterday, while John McCain’s campaign accused Obama and the Dems of putting “politics ahead of country.”

John McCain launched a blistering attack against Barack Obama yesterday, saying that Obama’s tax-and-spend policies “will deepen our recession.”

The Vice Presidential candidates are taking some time off the trail this week to prepare for their highly anticipated debate Thursday. Appearing with John McCain yesterday, Sarah Palin said she was looking forward to debating Joe Biden.
