Gas prices

I actually bought gas the other day for $1.33/gallon. Oh man, that was sweet.

There was a popular bumper sticker not too long ago that said "When Bush took office, gas was $1.46." No further details, but the implication was chimpy Bush and his cronies had jacked up the prices. You know, just sayin' . . .

Well, as of Dec. 29, the national average price of a gallon of gas was $1.59; adjusted for 2001 dollars, it works out to $1.33, 9% lower than when Bush took office.

I am educated enough to know that Bush personally did not have anything to do with gas prices during the last 8 years.

I'm just sayin' . . .

Your side is way ahead on this: on November 6th, 2008 your buddy Rush Limbaugh proclaimed the Obama (the magic negro, remember) recession to be in full swing.

Did you also hear that Andrew Keen (of the Daily Beast) says Obama's plan to expand broadband throughout the country will turn us all into Nazis?

I don't care what happens, me and G Gordon are not giving up on the birth certificate issue.
