An Ill Wind, Indeed

As the President prepares to announce escalation of the war in Iraq, it behooves us to note that way back in November, the Forbes Fictional 15 (duly reported and analyzed by Reuters) identified Daddy Warbucks from Little Orphan Annie as the world’s wealthiest fictional character.  Even then–with the anti-war election results just a few weeks old, and talk of troop withdrawal in the air–the war profiteer (sorry, defense contractor) had managed to dethrone Santa Claus and even outdo The Simpsons’ nuclear-waste-generating Montgomery Burns

Just think how well Warbucks will be doing once we start to "surge."  That would be next week.

W: What part of TROOPS HOME NOW didn’t you understand?
