Big Dan's Big News Apr 26, 2008

"The check's in the mail! We're going to get some of our money back that they took off us!!! Yippee!!! Bush wants to 'stimulate' you!!! $600 is 10 tanks of gas for me!!! Throw in a coupla 40 lb bags of rice from Sam's Club, and I'll be 'right as rain'!!!"

President Bush sending your 'stimulus check' directly to the oil companies, wants to 'cut out the middleman' (just kidding!); 'president' Bush said tax rebates will start going out Monday, earlier than previously announced, and should help Americans cope with rising gasoline and food prices, as well as aid a slumping economy.

Here's where your tax $$$ is going: to a multi ga-jillion dollar Baghdad embassy that's all fucked up! Built by the 'conservatives'...

McCain's poverty tour filled with contradictions. For John McCain, it was either the perfect political photo op or a moment of striking, and potentially damaging, political dissonance. On a breezy sunny day, McCain was surrounded by friendly African-American ladies as they rode a ferry across the muddy Alabama River. Perfect image — except that McCain, who's promised to veto every bill with earmarks if he's elected president, was aboard a ferry financed by one of those earmarks.

McCain: "I'm your worst nightmare"

McCain recent quotes:

– al Qaeda: “My presidency will be al Qaeda’s worst nightmare.”

– Democrats: “John McCain: The Democrats’ Worst Nightmare.”

– Washington: “I’m prepared to cut hundreds of billions of dollars out of wasteful and unnecessary spending in America. … It’s the worst nightmare. I’m their worst nightmare, my friend.”

- bd: McCain's missing quote: "If I'm elected, I'll be America's worst nightmare, because I will be Bush III! Didn't you learn your lesson from Dubya???"

After I complimente Skrepenak & Urban for voting to count absentee ballots that came in after the arbitrary deadline, but BEFORE the election (get that? BEFORE the election!), they reverse their votes and disenfranchize voters! A few days ago when Skrepenak said he wanted to encourage voting by making these votes count, must now be wanting to DISCOURAGE voting by reversing his vote??? It's the only thing you can imply here, right? Nice going, idiots! And FUCK YOU to the other 'cabal of democracy-haters' who went out of their way to make this an issue! "FIGHTING TO KEEP YOUR VOTE FROM COUNTING!!!!!!!!!!!" Aren't you glad there's people make sure your vote doesn't count, even though it's in before the election?
