 Need to encourage discussion on a topic? Start with an uncredited, long quote about something, followed by intemperate questions in boldface and all-caps. Always works!

It is not what Mark said (is it ever?), but the speed at which he said it.  Four (!!!) posts in under 2 minutes.  That has got to be a record.

Why can't we have the 5 percent GDP growth rate the U.S. had at the end of the "Bush economy"? Terrible!
I think it was 5 percent growth at the end of the Bush economy. Somebody should look it up.
Can you imagine the amazing growth rate we would have under a McCain economy? Things would be different for so many reasons!

I'm sure economists know what those reasons are. They're just not saying.

  When in doubt, use jargon and mockery.

 I don't think Osama Bin Laden is getting enough credit here for his role in the raid. Without Osama Bin Laden, there would have been no Osama Bin Laden to take out!

I mean, when you *really* get down to it, Osama Bin Laden pretty much killed himself, right?

 On Eno's math in calculating the employment number under Obama:

 There are millions in our cemeteries today who are just laying around, doing nothing, giving up on finding work after the Bush recession. Another tragic mass of unemployed workers

Unemployment rate of Civil War veterans: 100 percent. Why does Obama hate our fighting forces?

  And while I might have called myself "bonified" when I was 13 and came across a Playboy, since then I've understood the distinction between that made-up word and "bona fide."

   The Life can, with the help of local residents, assemble a committee of informed citizens who can be consulted on questions relating to civic history and the family relationships of civic leaders. The Life's Intelligent Citizen Experts (LICE) will be called whenever these situations come up: ...

 Additional printing expenses associated with blowing the press deadline will be absorbed by a special fund set up by LICE and supporters of its mission ("Friends of LICE").
