    for so much financial ruin now has bad credit.  

    Funny to think of the RNC going to Money Tree for a payday loan.

      INT -- PAWN SHOP -- DAY

      PAWNBROKER, a disheveled man in his mid-50s sits behind the counter, reading a racing form.

      REPUBLICAN STAFFER, an over-manicured man in his 30s enters, looks around for a moment, then approaches the counter.

              STAFFER (nervously)
         Yes, uh, I have something I'd like to sell, maybe?

              PAWNBROKER (continuing to read)
         Yeah, whaddaya got?

              STAFFER (reaching into his pocket)
         Uh, its a discredited and unpopular political ideology?

              PAWNBROKER
         Democrat or Republican?

              STAFFER
         Uh, Republican...

              PAWNBROKER
         Fifty bucks. Same as in town.

        do these guys any good.

        Hoping, against hope they come to their senses.  Our troops can't wait until January 2008, they need help now!

      •  I more picture the scene (0+ / 0-)

        in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (the book, I haven't seen the movie) where Lucius Malfoy visits Borgin & Burke's (a pawn shop specializing in dark magical artifacts) to try to sell some incriminating objects.

    •  Worse than bad credit, (0+ / 0-)

      They've been using the devil's credit card and he's gonna want to be repaid.

      He's the biggest loan shark there is!

      1. How did they expect to get away with all the stealing?
      1. How do they live with themselves.
      1. What is the difference between stupidity and evil.

      I have always thought that dumb people can cause as much havoc as evil ones.  Where do we draw the line.

      1. Are the American people going to take this assault to our young heroes or are we gonna stand up and all decide NO MORE REPUBLICAN'S IN 2008!

      The Bush cronies and their friends better change and get our troops the equipment and everything else they need TODAY!

      Because as it is they are never going to get the blood of all these innocents off their hands.

      I know they don't want to get in any deeper than they already are. A word to the wise, or dumb, is sufficient.
