You have to understand your priorities.
U.S. initial investment in emergency aid to tsunami-devastated areas of Asia: $15 million.
Estimated cost of Admiral Bunnypants' second inauguration ceremonies: $50 million.
Knowing that the U.S. media won't ever point out these perversely warped priorities: Priceless.
DEC. 29 UPDATE: U.S. pledges of assistance for disaster relief increase to $35,000,000. Bush administration finds additional funds by cutting back on appetizers at inauguration. Wealthy guests complain, but Bush vows to "stand firm" and "stay the course". Right-wing blogosphere nominates Bush for Nobel Peace Prize. Nobel Peace Prize committee collectively commits suicide in response.
