For the past seventy-nine days, McSweeney's has been publishing a daily reason to dispatch Bush. Today's reason:
President George W. Bush announced last week that the $34 million Congress had set aside for the U.N. Population Fund will be used for other purposes. This is the third year in a row that the president has denied funding for the organization, which works with governments in over 140 countries in the areas of population and reproductive-health programs.

What's nice about this weblog is its clarity of mission: every day just one reason; so if population funding isn't your thing, it's likely that there will be another issue that might induce voting.

Contribute to progressive literary and musical politics by pre-ordering the Future Dictionary of America, which includes a CD and will be shipped early next month. [mcstore]
