They'd probably set up competitive eating and try to securitize it, but you can only take this meme so far....well, maybe not.

If Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal: For Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland from Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Public" was good enough for predatory 18th-century English landlords and speculators, then by Sarah Palin's God it's plenty good enough for us today!

I don't understand. What's politically unfeasible about it?

If you are what you eat, then the existing proposal - which takes food from the mouths of the rest of us - pretty much amounts to the same thing.

It appears that the beauty of politics is that there's always a way!

Oh man, paınfully unfunny. Now Hufu was hılarıous, and ıt entırely lacked the douchey smugness that characterızes the so-called humour on thıs sıte. I tell you what, Jon, come to Moscow and I'll pay you 500 roubles to lıck the toılets at the Kıevsky traın statıon. Now that would be funny : ) Oh, and I'll gıve your even douchıer buddy Bernard a 1000 rur.
