The Charge of the Lie Brigade

Some comedy just writes itself:
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty promised yesterday that he would not raise taxes if he is re-elected this fall and insisted he means it this time.

The Premier, who ran on a no new-taxes platform in the 2003 election and then introduced one of the largest income tax increases in provincial history, said Ontarians should believe him now "because I'm in charge."

Reminds me of Lucy assuring Charlie Brown that she won't pull the football away at the last minute--- this time.

hey, even shrub sr tried that with his "no taxes" lip read...sigh, why do people never learn and why do politicians assume voters are stupid

btw, charlie actually asked lucy why she did that and the answer was she couldn't help it - reflex apparently
