State of the Numbers

President Bush will deliver his State of the Union address today. He probably will omit a lot of these numbers (via Scam City version 6.0). Come to think of it, probably almost all of them.

And some of them are quite amazing:

$113 million: Total sum raised by the Bush-Cheney 2000 campaign, setting a record in American electoral history
$130 million: Amount raised for Bush's re-election campaign so far
$200m: Amount that the Bush-Cheney campaign is expected to raise in 2004
$40m: Amount that Howard Dean, the top fund-raiser among the nine Democratic presidential hopefuls, amassed in 2003

Hullo, hullo? Anyone there? No, of course not. It's not even connected. But then, what's a 4 year old to know about how phones work? I wonder what my Dad was saying...
