Get out your dollar

Stamp-card-carrying liberals: A juice bar in the oil-drilling town of Vernal, Utah, advertises prices that are $1 more for those who identify themselves as liberal. I Love Drilling Smoothie &Juice Bar owner George Burnett says he donates the revenue from his tax on liberals to conservative causes.

But the liberals in town, both of them, are on to him; they withhold their tips and send the money to the ACLU.

Dennis, just don’t sit next to Coulter: The Fox News Channel has signed former Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich as a regular contributor. Kucinich, known for his liberal views, was to make his debut Wednesday on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

While Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes took pains to praise Kucinich’s willingness to take a stand on Fox shows, the former congressman will notice there is a $1 liberal surcharge in the Fox News lunchroom.

That’s no moon: The White House’s “We the People” website, which offers a response to online petitions has proved so popular that the threshold for a response has been increased to 100,000 signatures from 25,000. Recently, the White House had to explain why building a Death Star wasn’t feasible, after 34,000 people petitioned the government to build one.

On top of the new threshold, conservatives have to pay $1 to add their signature. And liberals $2.
