Funny and Sad from the Tonight Show

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

      ● The stock market was up 400 points today, or as the Democrats call it - terrible news.

      ● Barack Obama said again today that he wants to raise taxes on the rich - that's provided by November anyone is still rich.

      ● That seems to be the theme: In a speech today, Joe Biden said that paying higher taxes is patriotic. The Republican strategy on Joe Biden? Let him keep talking.

      ● The Democratic-controlled Congress said they are going to adjourn for the rest of the year. They said regarding the financial crisis, no one knows what to do. Well, that's a ringing endorsement to re-elect them - "You're on your own! We're leaving."

Sad things is, if Congress adjourned for the rest of the year, would anyone know they were gone?

Sometimes, I think the southern black pastor (unnamed) had it right. When African Americans were finally granted the right to vote in the Jim Crow south, he looked at the slate of candidates on both the Republican and Democratic side and commented:

"Well, the Republican is a rascal and the Democrat is a rascal too. We may not be able to keep a rascal out of office, but we sure can try to keep them from becoming entrenched in power."

With that, he urged his congregation to simply vote against every incumbant independent of party. When you look at our Congress, the wisdom almost seems Solomonic.
