Bake Sale Proposal [LINK]
A letter to the Boston Globe, a perfect expression of glibness, sarcasm, and overall lack of seriousness:
Now that President Bush has vetoed one supplemental appropriation bill and threatens to veto others, the question arises of how he might get this money. We on the left have been suggesting the solution for years: bake sales. This is how the rest of us support art programs in our schools and obtain money for classroom supplies and field trips. Maybe some of his big Republican donors would be willing to bid a few hundred thousand dollars for an extra-large brownie. While fighting a war is not the same as buying crayons , the petulant tantrums that Bush throws whenever Congress tries to set limits certainly fit better in my son's day-care center than in the White House.
