Another Reason He's History's Greatest Monster

One doesn't expect to see scathing criticism of liberals from the Skyway News, but this weeks edition provides just that in an article titled The Decline of the Three Martini Lunch.

And who do they blame for the decline? None other than our favorite failed President and his penchant for increasing taxes:

Many blame the death of the three-martini lunch on former President Jimmy Carter, who condemned the practice during his 1976 campaign as part of the broad inequities in the nation’s tax laws.

Carter said the working class was subsidizing the “$50 martini lunch,” which a rich businessman could write off as a business expense. (His opponent, Gerald Ford, defended the practice, calling it “the epitome of American efficiency. Where else can you get an earful, a bellyful and a snootful at the same time?” Ford said.)

Atta boy Gerry. Way to stick up for American values! (Hat tip to MNspeak.)
