Democrats Make Appeal for Hungry on Radio

DES MOINES, Iowa (Nov. 27) - Growing numbers of Americans were hungry this Thanksgiving, and the nation should do more to help them enjoy its bounty, the Democrats said Saturday in their weekly radio address.

"Unfortunately, the blessing of abundant food is not shared by all Americans," Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack said. "A recent report from our Department of Agriculture documented an increase in hunger in America, particularly among our children."

[OK, we know, the Democrats had a bad November. But we didn’t know that it went so far that now they cannot even feed their own children on Thanksgiving Day.]

Vilsack, chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, said sharing is an American value rooted in the country's origins when American Indians helped the Pilgrims four centuries ago.

"On that day, sharing became an American value," Vilsack said. "Living up to that value requires us to do what we can, and what we must, to stop hunger in America."

[Oh, I see. And what was it we shared with the Indians, besides diseases they couldn’t resist and reservations they didn’t want? So, does this mean he wants to raid the Indian casinos and liberate … uh, I mean share … their huge profits? And tell me, what is the main industry in Iowa, Governor? What was that … “growing food”?]

    You know, this is the kind of drivel that really sets me off.

    The democrats are SO concerned about the hungry on the radio. What about the hungry that are on TV. And don't even get me started about the hungry on books (although they do get more fiber).

    I, on the other hand, ate my body weight in Turkey. They should feel bad for me. I was soooo full...

    I know something about that. Eating your body weight in Turkey can get you kicked out of Istanbul. Been there, done that.

    Oh, the holiday? Dog and I succumbed to a triptophan induced coma about 7:00 pm. Woke up at the dinner table with mashed potatoes on my nose. Gotta do that more often!
