Expensive Night Out


(Thanks to my friend, Debbie Hogue-Downing for sending this. Debbie and her husband Carl are long time stalwarts of the Oklahoma Democratic Party. Debbie has served in various party offices over her long involvement in politics. Carl brings food to our county meetings.)

Last night, my wife demanded that I take her out to "someplace expensive." So I took her to our neighborhood filling station and bought a full tank of gas!

Remember, when W first took office, gas was $1.46 a gallon. He also claimed that Iraq would be able to pay for its reconstruction after his invasion through their oil revenues.
