Hey man, I made the paper

Was at the Bush Legacy bus yesterday and I was quoted in the "Daily Tribune" front page below the fold. I know it's the Daily Tribune, still pretty cool.

Touring bus touts failed GOP policies

Wednesday, September 24, 2008 6:08 AM EDT

ROYAL OAK Roger Jablonski was curious about the 45-foot biodiesel bus called The Bush Legacy parked at the Farmers Market on Tuesday.

After a visit to the Royal Oak Public Library, he said he had to take a closer look. He liked what he saw.

The side of the bus touring the country describes President George Bush's eight-year legacy as an economy in crisis, an endless war in Iraq, health care problems and record gas prices.

"I love it," the Royal Oak man said as he climbed inside what Americans United for Change call a "rolling museum of failed Republican policies."

"The last eight years have been pretty much a disaster," Jablonski said as he looked at exhibits titled "the road to global meltdown" and "leave no CEO behind."

"If you're for the Republican Party, you're not paying attention," Jablonski said.

1. Cool. It's surprising that the right-wing rag gave it any press at all.
The Trib is to the right of Bush, even. It's an appalling waste of wood pulp, still running Mallard Fillmore and fueling the right-wing hate and greed cabal.

I usually only buy that rag if I want to read high school sports stories or if I'm at the Library. I kidded with the reporter when she was taking her notes that I wanted to see this story on their front page, I was surprised when I saw it. If you ever want just pure solid hilarity read the Tribune's sound off section, most responses sound like Emily Litella or an older, more conservative John McCain. I'm sure they're trashing the Bush legacy Bus tour as we speak.
