The good news? It’s remarkably similar to the GOP’s plan.

Nancy Fichandler’s the one to watch. Content warning.

“What about the soldier hole? What about the energy hole?”

Wow. Is it me or is the Onion in top form this year?

Dr. Manhattan on November 12, 2008 at 6:34 PM

We have enough ‘holes in Washington.

Guardian on November 12, 2008 at 6:36 PM

Come on, you knew this was coming:

We’re gonna get something in our holes alright.

lorien1973 on November 12, 2008 at 6:36 PM

WTF

Why are you pushing pushing this pro-hole agenda?

If you love American you thrown money in it’s hole!

This is good.. muhaaahaaa

romanianhacker on November 12, 2008 at 6:40 PM

If this was not so near what is really going on it would be funny. You could do this same skit on MSNBC with real politicians and it would look the same.

“If you’re a real American, you throw money in it’s hole!”

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

(Sorry. I haven’t seen anyone write “BWAHAHAH…” in a while and I figured we were due. :) )

The biggest holes are in Washington.

A-holes, specifically.

How is this different than what Sen. Joe “Higher Taxes is Patriotic” Biden says?

Heh…and it won’t be money.

Django on November 12, 2008 at 6:58 PM

Some holes are revenue generating.

Dr. Manhattan on November 12, 2008 at 6:34 PM

They certainly are – but they’ve had a lot of material to use during the campaign and now its’ aftermath.

Truth is stranger and all that.

Don’t think those tax cuts are going to be coming espically if the taxpayers say they can wait for them. Hmmm wonder if they will ever come.

Guess what when the Bush tax cuts run out and there is no more extra money for the kids I bet they will be wanting those tax cuts back.

This was a great video.

I read somewhere that comics are really looking forward to having fresh meat to feed on…if they can get past His H-0-liness, that is.

At least there is more truth to this than what is coming out of the “Office of the President-Elect”…………..

“Shredding it up and feeding it to the hogs.” LOL!!!
