The Worst of Both Worlds

Looking at the recent reports of raises across the board for the bumblers at the White House I can't help but think of the rueful joke once told in the late and unmourned Soviet Union.

At the time the Soviet workers pretended to work and the government pretended to pay them.

In America in 2011, the government workers pretend to work and the government actually pays them.

I wish these humps would pretend to work - they'd do much less damage.

That pretty much sums up Hope and Change.
