Mike "Pocket Change" Castle Strikes Again


All Delawareans know the most important function of government is the minting of commemorative coins. It is so important that Mike Castle has devoted his career to the minting of commemorative coins.

Most people intuitively know that minting commemorative coins is the most important function of government, but they don't know why. The reason that the minting of commemorative coins is so important is that the commemorative coins help remind us to be thankful for the pocket change that trickles down to the middle class under republican economic policies.

When we see commemorative coins we are thankful that tax cuts are helping grown Paris Hilton's checking account in Grand Cayman, and thankful that when our jobs are sent to Mexico and China we can go to children’s state quarter collections to get a gallon of milk.

NOTE: If you click through the link above to the WNJ story please be aware of a correction to the photo caption that the editors assure me will be printed tomorrow.

The caption currently reads: Ben Franklin, portrayed by Ralph Archbold, chats with U.S. Rep. Mike Castle, R-Del., at the U.S. mint in Philadelphia on Monday.

The corrected caption will read: Ben Franklin, portrayed by Ralph Archbold, chats with a moderate republican member of congress, portrayed by Mike Castle, at the U.S. mint in Philadelphia on Monday.

Comments:
Wow. I finally got around to reading the Forbes article you linked previously.

The front of the coins would depict former presidents, but not those who are living or have been dead for less than two years... Four coins a year would be issued, beginning in 2007, in the presidents' order of service.

Hmmm... so they'd get to Bush 43 in 2018 or so? I suppose they'd have to check his pulse to see if they mint the coin, or check back next year.

But wait, there's more:

The bill also would create a companion gold bullion coin program bearing images of former first ladies and emblems of their causes on $10 coins.

I've ALWAYS thought Nancy Reagan was a ten-dollar piece.

Anyway, I wonder if the Republican Congress realizes the Clintons will be getting two coins apiece...

Companion coins for those presidents who had no spouse would show images of liberty and themes of the presidents' tenures.

I wonder if Rick Santorum voted for this provision?
 
Congressman Castle's Staff Flunky,

I know you read this blog. It is your job to read anything and everything that mentions ol’ Pocket Change. I also know that you are right to have a sick feeling in your stomach. No, that is not the Salmon you ate last night.

That is the feeling of knowledge sinking in. It is the sickening feeling of knowing that Delawareliberal can now put up pictures.
