This morning’s paper runs a New York Times article about new conservative groups rising up against Obama and his nomination of Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense. These new millionaire and billionaire sponsored groups are called things like Americans for a Strong Defense, Use Your Mandate, American Future Fund, and the Emergency Committee for Israel.

Truth be told, I mean if the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth were told, shouldn’t these names be given as, respectively,

  • Americans for Putting Ever More Deadly Amounts of Cash into Exploding the Planet
  • Use Your Mandate to Push through Every Billionaire Political Agenda
  • America Fund for Boundlessly Wealthy Plutocrats’ Future, and
  • Emergent Committee for an Increasingly Militant and Unprepared to Negotiate Israeli Fascist State

Just a few suggestions in the interest of truth in advertising, political truth, I mean, or something like the truth so help me God.
