Heeeeeeeee's Cooooooome Uuuuuuuun-do-i-o-i-one

Quick, what's even more deluded than Delay's claim that we've won the war on overspending?

Making that claim just after our idiotic spending priorities killed Americans...

Norbizness dazzles us with adjectives:

"Everyone's taking poor, stupid, venal, oily, sociopathic, smelly, loathsome, disgusting, flatulent Tom DeLay to task today for his assertion that the federal budget has been cleansed of pork. That's understandable, but let's not lose the thread of the budget narrative by exclusively focusing on what an unhinged, delusional, ethically challenged, theocratic, clownish, malevolent, dirty bastard the Majority Leader is."
After listing our profligate spending profile, Norbizness sums up:
"Quite simply, the nation is a family of four making $50,000 per year but spending nearly $60,000 per year (and carrying about $200,000 in debts). Unless you can get the kids to stop eating or wearing clothes, you're not going to be able to get out of debt by eliminating the occasional family outing to the ballpark. Somebody's going to have to take a tip from that West Indian family on In Living Color and start workin' eight job!"
