4. And who pays for Rove and Snow and all the others??
there is serious hankypanky going on... and not much of it legal.

For one, these creeps use RNC blackberries to hide their communications
and skirt laws regarding the public record.

6. From April 2005
In 2000, when jet fuel prices were lower, the GAO estimated that flying Air Force One cost $54,100 per hour, or $60,250 in today's dollars.

A C-137C, which the vice president generally travels on, cost $10,300 per hour to operate, or $11,470 today.

9. we pay for all their travel
they just mention some vague aspect of their "policy" (which is all political anyway) and presto! Taxpayers are on the hook.

No administration in history has campaigned so much.
