The Corporate Media's 296 Billion Dollar Field Goal

Imagine if the media covered football games the same way they covered politics. What would we see on the tv? We'd see the ball get snapped, and then we'd see the offensive and defensive lines clash and erupt into a big cloud of dust. Wow look at that play, wasn't it exciting? Barf...

There is such a thing as a ball, and if you keep your eye on the ball, you can see what's really going on! Gosh, what a concept!

The republicans are the offensive line, and the democrats are the defensive line. America is the ball. And the repugs are about to kick another field goal.

A $296 billion field goal!

How is this a victory for the repugs? Because Bush has stolen at least $3 trillion so far. That's how much the national debt has gone up on Bush's watch. Hmm lemme see, that's, erm, $600+ billion a year! And yet if you add up all the published "official" deficits, it adds up to about half of that. Huh? I don't want to hear any cracks about social security. 3 trillion is 3 trillion. 600 billion a year IS 600 billion a year, no matter how you slice it or spin it. THAT is how much these tax cuts have cost. So why is it that I never hear a democratic congressman mention any number greater than 420 billion? Are they stupid? What the hell is wrong with these people? $600 billion is like... over $2000 per person in America. Imagine if Bush had sent us all a check for $2000. Hehe of course the economy would get a boost. Duh. But Bush didn't even do that. (That would have been fair, but still irresponsible.) What he did was more like sending a check for $20,000 to the top 10%. Every year! It's fraud, and it's criminal. Why haven't democrats been screaming about this?

Obviously it's because democrats like to lose. Enjoy your game you idiots.
