Queen Elizabeth vs. King Dubya

This Reuters article says that it costs each British taxpayer just over a dollar each year to support the royal family.

I wondered how much it costs each U.S. taxpayer to support Bush's war. According to my calculations, it's in the neighborhood of $1100.

Call it the RICE tax (Republican Incompetence, Cronyism and Evangelicalism).

It takes a hell of a bad President to make me prefer to buy another yacht for Queen Elizabeth than to continue paying the RICE tax.
