Ever feel like you are watching a Loony Toons cartoon, 100's of incompitent Wile E. Coyote's and Elmer Fudds attempting to run this country?

Simply amazing.

Man I was all set, my hand was on the copy button. But then Snopes came up. Can not use it. Snopes is known for it's tongue in cheek reporting. Most do not believe it.

Damn and it was so good.

Thanks for the correction and the admonishment!

Sorry Cat, Unlocked this topic for one reply. It said in the snoops article that it was taken from Capitol Hill Blues in 1999, so I followed the link they provided. This information was taken from 1992 up til 1999, so it is a bit misleading, but even so, in 7 years, that is a lot. Here is the link from Capitol Hill Blues so that people can know where the article really came from.
