Paying Taxes is Patriotic...

Our vice president (Joe Biden for the majority of Obama voters who don't know) told us so.

Finally! Conservatives can legitimately claim liberals aren't patriotic - by their own standard. See Obama's list of nominees/appointees who don't pay "their fair share of taxes":

Timothy Gheitner - Treasury Secretary
Nancy Killefer - Performance Czar (withdrawn)
Tom Daschle - Director of Health and Human Services (withdrawn)
Hilda Solis - Labor Secretary
Ron Kirk - U.S. Trade Representative (pending)

Did I miss anyone? I'll keep a space open for future appointments/updates.
No wonder Democrats don't mind raising taxes on the rich - only rich Republicans pay them.

Oh yeah - Charlie Rangel (D - NY) - Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which writes the tax code. Lovely.

Yeah. It looks like Keith and I are soon to become SUPER patriots. I wonder if we'll get invited to the White House. Maybe we'll be lucky enough to be given a present like Gordon Brown received from our oh so sophisticated president:
a set of DVDs.
