Thanks to Rall

     I like Ted Rall's work.  Reading a lot of it at once is pretty easy, too.  Now, a lot of people give him grief over his emphasis on the we-invaded-Iraq-because-of-the-oil theory, but which is more outlandish, his mentioning it, or the corporate media spilling so much ink dismissing it?

     Thanks to this comic I set out to search for the following quote from this article, concerning Bush's pre-saved 1978 run for the US Congress

According to Gary Ott, who was then a reporter for the Plainview Daily Herald, Bush stopped by the paper’s little office “maybe five or six times. He’d sit down at my desk; he was a fun guy. He was very outgoing, very friendly, and we would argue politics since I was a liberal. We’d argue over Carter policies.” Bush criticized energy policy, federal land use policy, subsidized housing, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“a misuse of power,” he said), and he warned that Social Security would go bust in ten years unless people were given a chance to invest the money themselves.

     This one is simply great in case you know any Democrats who think we need to be more like the Republicans.
