On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart pointed out that the news media has been taking a harsh stance against Americans who are so poor that they're exempt from income taxes, yet those same outlets are mum when it comes to Exxon not paying a dime in US taxes on their $35 billion in annual profits. It's just one more reason why my program to donate gently used oil rigs to cash-strapped single moms and elderly retirees is such a great idea.

When the Bush Administration abdicates its throne in January, it will leave behind the redefinition of several administrative roles. The American vice president, for instance, is now a joint member of the executive and legislative branches as well as his own military branch in the war against pheasant-hunting old men.
Even more drastically changed is the role of White House Senior Advisor, which Karl Rove transformed from a middling policy job to one of great importance — ranking somewhat above U.S. President, but slightly below CEO of ExxonMobil.
Now with Rove banished to Fox News, (where he becomes the most liberal employee following the departure of Alan Colmes), the White House Advisor job transfers to David Axelrod, Barack Obama's longtime strategist.
Fun facts about Axelrod…
* He kind of hates Karl Rove.
* He is Jewish. This makes him an unlikely co-conspirator in Obama's planned destruction of Israel, which was reported by noted foreign policy analyst Joe the Plumber.
* He probably had a lot to do with Hillary Clinton's Secretary of State nomination, since she practically cured cancer as a favor to his wife.
