… and the Bolder Rolls Back Down the Hill

For the last few days, the Main Stream Blogosphere has been swarming around the ridiculous fantasies of Eason Jordan (If the military is really targeting reporters, how is it that Helen Thomas and Molly Ivins are still around?) But let’s get real; no one is really surprised that a CNN executive thinks in this way. What I don’t expect is disgusting neo-Marxist populism from the George W. Bush White House.

While the MSB was circling around Jordan, Drudge uncovered a shocking statement from White House budget director Josh Bolten:
“If you look at the president's tax cuts as a totality, the income tax, those at the upper end of the spectrum are now paying a larger share of the income tax than they were before”

It doesn’t bother me so much that the rich are now shouldering a higher tax burden, we’re used to that. What bothers me is the unseemly pride Bolten takes in this fact. He’s actually bragging to his commie media buddies that he’s screwing the rich. We still have a long way to go in fighting these class warfare hatemongers.

Bolten’s attitude is especially galling on a day when my Halliburton stock has fallen yet again. My total loss since inauguration day is now $63K (enough to finance 6.3 pretend Randy Moss moonings). Where are the no-bid Halliburton contracts in this new budget, Mr. Bolten? Are you or are you not a Republican?

I, Sisyphus, demand your immediate resignation.

UPDATE: Okay, okay, stop the e-mails. I know Helen Thomas and Molly Ivins have never been to Iraq. That doesn't mean they can't be targeted by the military. The Pentagon could claim that the huge gravitational field generated by the ladies threw off the guidance systems of the cruise missiles. I would believe it.
