Day 13: Federal Employees Held Hostage
Amazing that this lunacy has continued for so long. At least the House Republicans have finally stopped the “piecemeal” approach to reopening the government. Now they’re just doing nothing. I liked the “piecemeal” approach because it sounded so much like, “We’re releasing one of the hostages as a show of good faith to convince the authorities that we’ll let the rest go if they give us what we’re demanding.” Too bad this isn’t simply a hostage stand-off with criminals surrounded in a bank. Then we could just give the loonies in Congress an airplane to flee the country and be rid of them. Oh, and speaking of Congress, with something like only 11 percent of the population saying they think Congress is doing a good job, you have to wonder: who are these people who think Congress is doing a good job? Below is a link to a satire on The Onion that actually hits the mark.
