I Want Revenge: A horse for our times

I Want Revenge: A horse for our times

Horse names have always been a little strange -- what exactly is a Secretariat, other than a new cabinet position in President Obama's new 5-year-plan that he's soon be rolling out? But seriously, is there a better name for 2009's top horse in this era of wanker-banker bonuses and torture regimes than I Want Revenge.

He'll have to beat a very tough field in tomorrow's Kentucky Derby, which includes such top horses as Credit Default Swap, War President, Overseas Contingency Operation, Toxic Asset, Orange Alert, I Want Cheney to Go To Jail, and Enhanced Interrogation, which despite his name has never been beaten.
