Speakin' of national character counts week, I doubt you'd find a thimblefull in this gathering!
Bush Invites Right-Wing Radio Hosts To White House
The White House yesterday
released a photo of President Bush meeting with right-wing radio hosts.
The guests:
– Sean Hannity (”[M]aking sure Nancy Pelosi doesn’t become the [House] speaker” is “
worth … dying for“)
– Neal Boortz (Islam is a “deadly virus“)
– Laura Ingraham (Sens. Biden and Boxer are “on the side of” Kim Jong-Il)
– Mike Gallagher (Gore and Hitler “brilliantly put together side by side” in campaign video)
– Michael Medved (”[T]he subject of my conversation with the president of the United States” was that Islam has “a special violence problem.”)

THANKS TO THINK PROGRESS FOR THIS!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
