Where Has All The US Oil Gone?
While the U.S.

Bush Signs Eavesdropping Law New York Times
Wham! Bam! No Thank You, Phil Gramm!
By Madeleine Begun Kane
We’re “a nation of whiners,” says Gramm.
Our economy’s not in a jam.
It’s a “mental recession,”
This public obsession
With price hikes and jobs on the lam.
So who is at fault? It’s the press.
Yes, says Gramm, they have brought on this mess.
It would seem that reporting
The news isn’t sporting.
Vote McCain for continued “success.”

Stevie Wonder's song
"Signed, Sealed, Delivered " was playing, as Barack Obama had just ended his
speech at a fundraiser at the Grand Hyatt in New York.
"Hold on a second," Obama said, coming back to the microphone in front of several hundred of his supporters. "One more thing.... Senator Clinton still has some debt. And I could have had some debt if I hadn't won, so you know the drill. There are many supporters of mine here who have not yet given something to help her retire that debt... I would be very grateful if you looked under your chair, I think there should be an envelope or a pledge sheet or something.... That is part of the process of making sure that we're unified. Alright, turn on the music again, let's keep on partying."

Dear Obama, your flight to the right
Is making me feel quite uptight.
It’s alarming how fast
You’re forsaking the past
And converting to GOP-lite.
"The notion that somehow that's me trying to look like I'm, you know, more centered, more centrist, is just not true" - Barack Obama
