And as Keith Olbermann asked on Countdown on MSNBC just now, "Just how many copies of "My Pet Goat" does one library need?"
Half a Billion. Half a billion. For a president whose only book we ever really saw him read was "My Pet Goat"... while hundreds and thousands of Americans died.
How about making Mr. Bush - who is OUR overpaid, underqualified employee - raise half a billion more appropriately for:
- health care to help the rising number of Americans without health insurance (or care) under his tenure
- books for real students
- alternative fuels (how come Brazil will be energy dependent next year and we can't even do better than making an "energy efficient" hog of a Humvee?)
- Darfur (please visit Save Darfur)
- a real investigation into 9-11
Better yet, how about a half billion for each of these and still more? It's not like we expect Bush the Genius to actually lead us.
