Bush was a profligate spender …. especially in the period from 2006 – 2008 when the Democrats were in control of Congress … but Bush’s spending pales in comparison to Urkel’s.

The teabaggers do the opposite. They find the most easily disprovable, absurd idea and then hoist that as their banner. I find it interesting they try to advance obvious, easily disprovable lies. It wouldn't occur to me to try that tactic.
