I see that a Congressman with a sense of humor has written the “Rangel Rule Act of 2009, HR 735,” which, when written on one’s tax return would exempt one from paying interest and penalties on taxes unpaid in the past. Doug Ross suggests that there ought to also be a “Dodd Rule,” which would permit one refinancing a loan to obtain a new loan fifty basis points lower than the market rate.
I would like to suggest the “Pelosi Rule,” which you can invoke after you’ve been asked a question by a reporter and your answer is, at best, gibberish, or, at worst, pure horseshit. The benefit of this rule is that its prompt invocation will cause the Mainstream Media Lemon to refrain from asking you “WTF?”
I figure I must be on Candid Camera or some shit. It’s all a gag, right? This cannot be happening to the country. Can it?
