Let's see if I get this straight. The President and the House of Representatives have joined forces and announced a "stimulus" package that will give me a $600.00 tax rebate to quickly boost the American economy and lead this nation back to prosperity.

As Lord Byron once wrote, "Crimini, jimini! Did you ever hear such a mimminy pimminy story...?"

This "generous" $600 rebate means that every day over the next full year I can purchase a Hostess Twinkie at the local Tiger Mart and still have a shiny quarter left over for something else. I can't recall when I have ever felt so "flush."

Or is it "flushed?"

As in down the toilet.
