Okay, a few more political notes for today:

A couple in North Kansas City (never, ever, to be confused with Kansas City North) found a $2,300 donation to the Obama campaign on their credit card statement. Problem is, these two registered Republicans made no such contribution. Check those statements carefully, gang.

Didn't the Democrats raise all kinds of stink over President Bush's economic stimulus plan that gave everybody a few hundred bucks? Well, I guess they changed their minds. Nancy Pelosi is now talking about a $300 billion stimulus plan.
The California Democrat envisions a bill that would include new spending on highways and bridges, extended benefits to unemployed workers, aid to cash-strapped states and a tax cut, congressional aides said.
Is it mere coincidence that California and New York are both waiting at the trough for aid? Only last week, her plan only called for $150 billion. Wonder how much she'll want next week?

Finally, a laugh to brighten the rest of your week. This editorial was published in today's Boston Globe. Here's a little bit to whet your curiosity:
Assume that Barack Obama wins the election, as polls show is increasingly likely. The following day, Vice President Cheney should be prevailed upon to resign. Using his powers to designate a successor under the 25th Amendment, President Bush should then appoint, and Congress should confirm, Obama as vice president (just as Richard Nixon appointed Gerald Ford vice president in 1973 when Spiro Agnew resigned). Bush himself should then resign, elevating Obama to the presidency - as Ford became president when Nixon resigned. Obama should then appoint Joe Biden as vice president.
I laughed until I cried. Then I realized they were serious.
