  •  It's a new disease! (0+ / 0-)

    It's called, "Financial Contribution-Induced Deafness Syndrome," and it's attacking both Republicans, Blue Dogs and even some "Democrats."

    A shocking illness, it attacks that part of the auditory nervous system that interprets information that is contrary to the financial interests of one's most prominent corporate donors.

    In the most serious cases, politicians such as John Boner literally cannot hear what their own constituents are yelling at them from a close distance.

    Fortunately, there is hope for a cure. Researchers are investigating the use of a specially designed forceps to pull wads of thousand dollar bills from the ears of politicians such as Boner, possibly rescuing them from a career of utter cluelessness. Others favor the "Primary" cure, where thousands of angry citizens inject tons of money into the campaigns of opposing candidates, hoping to offset the symptoms of this terrible plague upon our body politic.

    No word yet on whether the forceps or Primary remedies will be covered by the "public" health care option...
