Badger Bites: Quotables Edition

Dad29 brings us: "As soon as you understand that the Tax Code was largely written by special interests, you'll understand why "Taxes for Dummies" is 30% longer than "Einstein for Dummies."

Sean notes, "Leslie Carbone thought that by McCain’s logic on keeping the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts McCain’s plan to have a summer gas tax holiday would amount to a tax hike after Labor Day. Fiorina noted oil hit an all-time high. It’s the number one issue on Americans’ minds. She also noted, “the price of fuel is being passed on to the price of food.” McCain’s gas tax holiday is his way of responding to an issue affecting people right now."

Cindy, as she live-blogs McCain in Milwaukee at Bucyrus: "McCain is still here. Surprisingly, so is 80% of the crowd."

Wiggy opines: "Darryl Enriquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has the advance copy of Mayor Larry Nelson's "state of the city" speech. At 16 pages, the resemblance to Fidel Castro is more apt than ever."

Whalla! brings us - well, nothing quotable, but the bonus is You fill in the quotes!!! Use the following guaranteed 100% hilarious cartoon from Whalla!

Owen celebrates, albeit prematurely: "WOOHOO!!! We’re only weeks away from covering the cost of government! "

Fred writes his "own six word memoir[:] I'm sorry, what shouldn't I touch?"

While that's a fun crowd so far, Kathy pens my favorite: "It is official. Tonight I was sworn in as an Alderman for the City of Kenosha. They cannot take it back now."
