So the Dems want to raise our taxes...

Well blow me over with a feather! I'd like to thank Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-Obviously) for promoting "the largest individual income tax increase in history."

You know, this reminds me of a skit Saturday Night Live did a few years ago called, "What Were You Thinking?," mocking Walter Mondale's famous pledge to raise taxes, which ultimately lost him the presidency:
Q: Now Mr. Mondale, you ran for president on a platform of... raising taxes.
Mondale: I know, I know.
Q: Now historically successful candidates have always pledged to... lower taxes.
Mondale: I know, I know...
Q: What were you thinking?
Mondale: I don't know.
