We have lots to be angry about. Follow me below the fold to see why.
**Edit: Please feel free to recommend this. Spread the donuts around! I'm out of hides for the day, so someone else should take over!
The House Dems voted tonightt to continue funding the war. Another blank check for the president! Can anyone guess why the Democratic-controlled Congress is getting Dick Cheney-like approval ratings? It's the war, stupid!
Gas prices continue to skyrocket. While we know offshore drilling is not the solve-all problem the GOP would make it out to be, the Republicans look like they're trying to jump on this as a big issue. Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who might be McCain's VP if not for the rumors surrounding his sexual orientation,
has reversed his stance on drilling to bring himself in line with McSame.
It's a sad statement about America today that while couples in one part of the country can celebrate same-sex marriage, one's sexual orientation can be enough to nix one's chances at higher political office.
Meanwhile, the Mississippi River continues to wreak havoc in the middle part of the country. McSame and Bush finally showed today, but slimy McCampaign adviser Charlie Black noted, "We’re not going within 30 miles of the city [Dubya]’s in.
In case you weren't content enough with wars raging in Afghanistan and Iraq, it seems like Israel is well on its way to attacking Iran. Make war, not love!
And lastly, my favorite college hockey team will be shuffling its coaching staff for the first time in nine years after losing an assistant coach to Miami-Ohio.
The title for this diary is -- of course -- a tribute to Grandpa McCain, who earned the nickname "reverse ace" after he crashed five planes:
The instructor added that McCain was "positively one of the weakest students to pass our way, and received consistently poor marks and a number of Dangerous Down grades assigned by more than one instructor. He had no real ability and was clearly out of his element in an airplane, and way over his head even as a junior naval officer."
So what are the rules? If you comment here, I'll give you a hide rating. To paraphrase Nathan Hale, I regret that I have only five donuts per day to give out. If by some quirk this diary gathers more than five comments, maybe someone will pick up the slack.
