She makes $2m a year? I suppose that helps answer all the questions about how ethical it is to return all those "didn't like the color" purchases.

What do you mean by Clinton-esque?

Me, I just like the fact the she has a mechanical engineering degree.  I don't like the fact that she was an executive at Washington Mutual prior to its failure.  I'm neutral about the REI connection.

Just a light-hearted joke on the alternate meaning of "taps."

If you get it, you'll understand the "Clinton-esque" reference.  T'was just a joke.

No no no GBH.  What Obama would have said was, "You didn't tap that - someone else made that happen"  :D
