Mayhem at Florida Wal-Mart mars first shopping day of Christmas
There is just something so post millennially imperial about lower middle class and poor Americans physically fighting for ownership of a few 3rd world, slave-produced techno knock-offs in a giant sheet metal warehouse owned by some of the richest people in the world.

This morning the Vice President slapped on the kissy face he once used to woo Lynn while, again, resorting to the same cherry-picked excuses, invective and personal attacks that have characterized his recent pronouncements before hand-selected crowds of docile supporters or oath-bound members of the military.
Though Mr. Cheney called Congressman Murtha "a good man, a Marine, a patriot", he could not restrain himself from describing "some U.S. senators" as "dishonest and reprehensible" for peering too deeply into the murky pool of the Iraq war's origins:
"What...is dishonest and reprehensible, is the suggestion by some U.S. senators that the president of the United States or any member of his administration purposely misled the American people on prewar intelligence."
With the Vice President exiting the bunker more and more frequently, cable television viewers are left with the unedifying spectacle of three high-ranked US government officials including the President and the Secretary of Defense in a political campaign to blur responsibilities, misrepresent the facts and name call as young American soldiers continue their loyal service in conditions of tremendous strife.
