A tax plan only a millionaire could love.

CNN.com - Bush wants to end dividend tax - Jan. 6, 2003

Huge surprise. Kind of like watching an Ent vs. Hobbit wrestling match, and the Ent wins round one with a hobbit-toss to the far corner.

Look, if you're going to be a crook, could you at least be a little subtle? A tax cut on stock dividends? How many middle-class or lower-class tax payers: a) have stock at this point, b) have stock which is paying dividends, and c) paying dividends in such a large quantity that it's a major tax problem for them? That would be... near zero.

Subtle like a Warner Brothers' cartoon. Sheesh.
