Welcome rich, white oligarchs.


Welcome rich, white oligarchs. Uploaded on August 21, 2008by The Zeppelin

It turns out the Daily Show has purchased some advertising in the T.C. in preparation for the RNC. 

Apparently, the sign off of I-494 reads “Welcome rich, white oligarchs.” 

It’s about time someone shows a little kindness to the wealthy running the world.

I wish I had a picture.

    This is so awesome. I might have to drive over there tomorrow to get a picture.

    The Daily Show offends me.

    Moe – If so pretty please with sugar on top, add it to the Metblogs pool. I’d love to post it.

    Kevin – Me too, those insensitive dinks. Now I want to arm wrestle John Stewart.

    Do you hear that Stewart? The golden inlayed gauntlet has been tossed.

    How far up 494 is it? I drove it west from Hwy 5 to Hwy 100 yesterday but didn’t see it.

    It’s right by the intersection of 494 and 77 on the north-east corner. I was hoping to find a picture of it online, but I guess I’ll have to take matters into my own hands. I’ll post a pic when I have it.

    Moe – I would have guessed near the airport.

    Webermp – Thanks!

    Best I can do with my iPhone. Tried to clean it up a bit, but didn’t help much: http://skitch.com/mikeweber/u5ny/rich-white-oligarchs

    Hey, Mr. Zeppelin kindly added the photo to the pool. Thank you, sir!

    You should add it to the post. In all its glory.
