What hath Gutenberg Wrought?

Having just received my annual "gift" from the IRS, it occurred to me that had Gutenberg never invented the printing press, it would have been impossible to implement the tens of thousands of pages of the Internal Revenue Code. Can you imagine trying to hire enough scribes to even make the copies needed for Congress to vote on it?

(or the suicides among the scribes tasked with copying such horrific drivel?)

By the way, the candidates that are advocating a repeal of the Internal Revenue Code are Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, and Fred Thompson, I believe.

...and when you say 'advocating a repeal of', you mean 'dancing to that beat right now', right? :)

Regrettably, yes, there is the issue of "do they really mean it", as well as the issue of "can or will they do it?"
