    Was that supposed to be funny?
    Are you suggesting that we should have elected McCain simply to keep certain radical terrorist group numbers down?

    It was either change or hope.

    Nah, that's the word for the current decade.

    No need for that since every new citizen is presented an AK-47 as a welcome gift

    This is as lame as it can come. These followers of nothing and the fact that it was so overused is disturbing. I guess it is better than D'oh!

    well... at least it would stimulate the economy. Just don't buy it on a credit card.

    You are provided one upon arrival. It comes with your American Immigrant Survival Kit.

    So with change being the word of 2008, does that mean that the change will not be coming in 2009 and beyond? It'd be pretty lame if they repeated that as word of the year in the future. hmm...

    Well, if it's a welcome gift from the government, it won't be purchased on a plastic card, but rather a piece of paper stating that we now owe someone even more. Go stimulus package, go!
