Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever.

The funny thing is, both responses are wrong.

Yes, we need price controls.  ;)
I smell something burning, hope it's just my brains.
They're only dropping peppermints and daisy-chains
   So stuff my nose with garlic
   Coat my eyes with butter
   Fill my ears with silver
   Stick my legs in plaster
   Tell me lies about Vietnam.

And your buddy Obama
the "agent of change"
voted for the Farm Bill
And McCain did not.

Do you have a link for that CU4?  Because according to this, neither McCain, Clinton, or Obama voted on the final bill, though Clinton and Obama voted once each on one of the two amendments, McCain didn't vote at all.

Not that it changes my point
But you are correct Fatman
I should have said "supported" instead of "voted"
so it really should read this way

And your buddy Obama
the "agent of change"
supported the Farm Bill
And McCain did not

For what it's worth, this thing should have been torpedoed for the amount of pork that it has.  But that's politics as usual I guess, it's worth noting if you follow the link that even "conservatives" Craig and Crapo of Idaho voted in favor.  At least Coburn didn't.
