Congress Extends Unemployment Insurance Benes!!! Whoo-hoo!!! I'm Goin Home Early! G'Night Suckers!

So Congress JUST passed a payroll TAX CUT to increase workers’ take-home PAY — AND — extended Unemployment Insurance Benes too!!!  Whoo-Hoo!

Who needs this gig?  I’m goin’ home.  G’night!

Don’t know about you but there goes MY incentive to work — just like some in Congress said!

Outta the offices!

Outta the factories (if any left)

Time to start the “OCCUPY THE MAN CAVE”  movement.

EXCLUSIVE: OBAMA'S SAX SCANDAL

Planet Washington’s Ken Rynne was published Feb 11 in the leading South African humour magazine (even the spelling is funny!) SAX APPEAL. ‘SA’ as in South Africa.  X as in ‘X.'(Think The Onion but with Mandela on the side).

I enjoyed meeting students from the University of Cape Town last summer one of whom invited me to contribute to her epic publication.

The story, a SAX APPEAL EXCLUSIVE, explains that Republicans in the US typically get into money scandals and Democrats get into sex scandals. A well managed scandal can change the subject (from, say, unemployment, traditionally a downer) and actually give their ratings – among other things – a boost.  If it doesn’t kill their careers totally (McGreevy, Craig) or get them their own cable tv show (Spitzer) or a run for higher office (Gingrich).

President Obama’s clean image just isn’t helping him much.  What he needs is a good olde fashioned scandal!  But as one who ran on a theme of ‘change’ and has governed as a centrist, will he pick the right scandal?  Goldman Sachs only knows!

The answer – and the story – will be recounted on the Planet Washington web site in the coming days.  Watch this space – or order a copy of your own: www.saxappeal.uct.ac.za  Hakuna matata!

Gingrich, Romney Campaigns Trade 'Valentines'

Happy Valentine’s Day Taxpayers!
FROM Cam-PAIN 2012:  Of all days – Valentine’s Day - the negative campaigning has reached an all-time low.  On this sacred day when we are called to express our true affection, deep appreciation, and pure love as we gaze into our beloved’s eyes, Gingrich workers made this impossible by stealing all the mirrors from Mitt Romney’s hotel room!
 ———————–
Later, things escalated as Romney workers caused mass confusion at Gingrich campaign headquarters tying up the phones for hours with calls from hundreds of women identifying themselves only as ” Mrs Gingrich” ———————
Here on Planet Washington Valentines Day is very inclusive
- all are celebrated here!
we have men who love women
we have men who love men
and then we have men who love no one at all
these men we call lawyers.
Happy V Day to you all – unless you have other plans!
———————-
And Washington’s Mayflower Hotel is commemmorating the fourth anniversary of  Eliot Spitzer’s Valentine’s Eve sojourn there with a woman not his wife.  That’s right, for just $3,000,
you get to stay in Suite 827 where Eliot & ‘Kristen’ ‘slept’ for 20 minutes
you get a press release announcing your resignation from your job to spend more time with the family,
and you get a talk show on cable.
Socks are extra.
