this is the way the world ends

On the same day that the U.S. Congress agreed to give George Bush another one hundred and sixty-five billion accountability-free taxpayer dollars to finance his war crimes in Iraq for the next several months (and his invasion of Iran in October,) what is our magnificent, Russert-worshipping press focusing on today?

They have managed to expose the financial waste story of the century.

It seems that Michelle Obama paid a clothing store one hundred and forty-eight dollars for the black and white dress she wore on "The View" this week, when the designer of the dress sells it for ninety-nine dollars on her own website.

Not with a bang, but a whimper...

I am shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, to learn that, in this economy, Michelle Obama would pay full price for a dress rather than taking advantage of a discount by buying it direct.
Even though our President insists we're not really in a recession, and he has such an excellent record of understanding the economy, such spendthrift behavior represents nothing more than a betrayal of the American people. I am so sick I may not vote for Michelle Obama this November, but cast a vote of protest for her husband instead!

Ah...but did her shoes match the dress?

Off with her head for buying shameful to actually do something to keep her neighbors employed.
