Express Your Displeasure for the Gas Tax Proposals

Greater Greater Washington has put together a site to express your displeasure at the dumb gas tax ideas put forth by Hillary Clinton and John McCain. It's formatted as a Nigerian scam letter. You know, the ones that try to get people to give their bank account numbers to wire a large sum of money, but then take yours instead.

We are top officials of the United States Senate Government who are interested in importation of oil into our country with funds that are presently trapped in the FEDERAL TRANSPORTATION TRUST FUND dedicated to improving transportation. We wish to send this money to overseas accounts in the MIDDLE EAST but cannot due to restrictions in Congress Transportation Equity Act requiring that this money must be spent to build roads, bridges and high speed trains.

If you accept we will deliver to your a sum of 30 DOLLARS in the summer 2008 in form of a "GAS TAX HOLIDAY". You will then deliver this money to accounts of our friends in Middle East by taking it to your nearby gasoline station where they have information to forward the money. Please supply your bank account, social security number, address and your vote in DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES AND NOVEMBER GENERAL ELECTION.

Doesn't sound so far off does it?
