Quote of the Day

From a Paul Krugman column on The Cat Food Commission:

It seemed obvious, as soon as the commission’s membership was announced, that “bipartisanship” would mean what it so often does in Washington: a compromise between the center-right and the hard-right.


Top Ten Suggestions From the Cat Food Commission

# 10) Cutting free movies when seniors volunteer for the Soylent Green Program.

# 9) Free toothpick in every tenth can of Friskies.

A hollow promise. Most seniors don't need toothpicks and they will only be able to afford the store brand anyway, not the premium brands like Friskies.

I like this one:

7) Presidential debates to be waged between the two nominees with a single broken pool cue in an alley.

Heh. Me'n Fixer've got a shot!

"Oh, the irony" Update:

Debt panel chairmen call for second look at the public option

Shorter: The rich will get richer and everybody else is gonna get screwed. Business as usual.
