GOP Mock Toasters

For some absurd reason, certain Republicans think it's funny that some Americans can't even afford basic amenities (like a toaster) because of our current economic crisis.


Tuesday, on NBC's Today Show, Sen. Joe Biden said, “[The Obama] tax plan would take that tax cut of another $130 billion that John [McCain] wants to give to people making over $250,000 next year, not let it go forward and give it to the middle class — the very people who desperately need it to stay in their homes, to buy food, to take care of the gas, to fill up their tank, to be able to go out and buy a toaster, to employ people.” And, the GOP responded by saying, "Did you catch Joe Biden saying this morning that their tax cut will allow Americans to buy a ‘toaster’? Nothing says a sound economic plan like ‘buying a toaster.’”

Erm, You'd think they'd be a little more sympathetic to the American citizens struggling with today's failed economy, especially after the bloodbath on Wall Street yesterday!

If you ask me, this is just another reason why John McCain cannot win the November election. He doesn't even get the fact that buying food and, YES, buying a toaster are big problems that Americans face. I mean, how pathetic is it that people can't afford toasters!? Come on now!
