So, with no further ado, I present to you This Week's Brick TeeVee entry!

Tax day is around the corner and so is the Pennsylvania primary and its attendent debate. (Rumor has it that JOHN MCCAIN will be debating himself on who is supporting AQ in Iraq.) The dynamic disfunctional duo MATLIN & CARVILE and their respective party counterparts SHRUM & MURPHY will clog your NBC channel on Meet the Tim. The Brick TeeVee crew recommends skipping this one unless you're into this kind of self-flagellation. This George has JIMMY CARTER on from Nepal and STEPHEN HADLEY continues his part to rewrite history. Former Iran-Contra figure and current SoD ROBERT GATES spins happy stories about "The Surge" on Face the Bob and MADAME SPEAKER PELOSI shoots holes in his double-speak. U-Boat Captain Blitzer has grudge matches between JOE BIDEN & RICHARD LUGAR and BOB CASEY & EVAN BAYH. Save your bricks for prime target JOE "my servers were hacked" LIEBERMAN also on Late Rendition. TOM DASCHLE goes to the Dark Side on that "fair and imbalanced" network. Watch Steve Croft explain where your tax dollars go in Iraq on 60 Minutes. Seder is TBA on the guest list and Massa in the Morning will keep your sanity. Don't forget Part Two of Ring of Fire's interview with CHALMERS JOHNSON and talks with HOWARD ZINN and ROBERT RIECH. The Brick TeeVee crew continues to stare blankly at the piles of Schedule A's, Schedule C's, 1099's and the 1040 long form amid piles of various receipts, bills, charges and empty pizza boxes hoping they would all just fall on the forms themselves. We wish there were boxes where you can check what programs your tax dollars can be assigned to. If the IRS did THAT the Pentagon wouldn't be able to pay its light bill much less garrison the planet!
