"Pithy, witty, funny and on top of the news. What blogs are to political commentary, the Daily Scribble is to the editorial cartoon. I keep coming back for more."  Joshua Micah Marshall, Talking Points Memo.



"Though Charles Pugsley Fincher would do well to find a stage name, his daily scribbles are nothing to scoff at. Plain and simple, on lined yellow scratch paper, yet they speak volumes." Jacob Wheeler, Utne.com.

"I think Thadeus & Weez is wonderful. You've hooked me." Jim Lehrer, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.

George W. Bush wants to change Social Security by letting you opt-out to a degree with personal investment accounts. He announced this at the end of his pep rally, yesterday, also known as his economic conference, and began his usual scare tactics to get his way.

A small problem is that the change-over would cost Americans $2 trillion at a time when Bush says he's going to reduce the budget deficit. Experts say that Bush will have to either cut Social Security benefits or raise taxes to pull this off.

Bush says that's not so, but won't say why other than to claim that the market will grow to make up the difference out of confidence it shows for his actions. Moreover, with 38 years of future social security payments verified, opponents of the Bush magic plan say the change would be dangerous and that the present system works best. New York Times.
