  1. John Ellis says:

    “Butcher Medicine Bailout —- Circus Side-show Extravaganza.”


    Does everyone have their script? The debate over Public Option starts today, is everyone rehearsed and ready to go?

    Joe Wilson:
    Maybe my yelling out, “You lie” was overdone. Being down so low in the polls now, anyway why do I have to play the heavy?

    Have no fear, lobbyists will have an executive opening for you in industry. But you may not lose your election, for I’m set to take all the heat for the bailout trillions as both the defense and medical industries want Republicans running the White House and Congress next term. Much privatizing of government coming up.

    Olympia Snowe:
    Most all my voters back home are conservative, the part your asking me to play is going to cost my much support.

    Read the final act. You sign on to the Public Option just before the last vote in the Senate, by then we will have it most conservative in effect and a dozen Republicans have been ordered by the lobbyists to also vote in favor of it.

    Max Baucus:
    Yes, and we have many heated debates planned out, much burning of the voters emotions to blind their minds.

  2. John Ellis says:

    Bless their darling hearts, such a grand performance of the Paid Actors Congressional Theater Guild, as the curtain goes up on act one of,

    “Butcher Medicine Bailout —- Circus Side-show Extravaganza.”

    Surely a Tony Award must go to Baucus the back-stabber as best supporting actor for his performance as no-change Obama’s favorite lap dog.
