Bush Guilty of Observing Laws, Tradition

Maybe the media in general is absolutely unbiased (and maybe dogs will fly out of my butt), but I still enjoy the occasional flagrant Yahoo! news headline such as Bush's Campaign Travel Bankrolled by Taxpayers. Gasp! Was... was this done with our consent??

Do you mean the little check box on my 1040 ("check here if you wish to contribute to the Presdidential Campaign Fund" or some such) is actually SPENT for what it's allocated?

Yahoo! amuses because if there's a negative skew to be grafted on to an otherwise mundane news story, they will skew with reckless abandon. "Ritsch said the system is likely to remain for the foreseeable future — mostly because both Democrats and Republicans have benefited, leaving little will on either side to change it."
