It was rumored that my Organic Chemistry professor, a true mad scientist and delightfully eccentric individual, used to reward failed college exams by stapling a Taco Bell application to the tests before returning them to their disgraced producers. His obvious objective was to paint a vivid picture of the future lax students were preparing for themselves by neglecting to study harder.
I would like to suggest that we, the People, offer similar visions to our representatives in Washington of the life they just applied for by passing this Ticket on the Marx Express, “Health Care Reform.” Let us swing by Taco Bell, ask for a couple of blank applications, and mail them to the Congressmen and Women who just failed the test on Core American Principles. The fast food applications should also be sent to the Republican intellectual dwarves who, by supporting the Stupak Amendment, eased the consciences of Pro-Life Democrats and enabled the passing of the Bill. Three defecting Democratic votes would have saved America from becoming Cuba.
Special applications should be sent to Republican Traitor, Joseph Cao. He is not worthy to serve burritos to American teen-agers. He should work for Burger King. (No offense meant here to either Taco Bell or Burger King. Sometimes we need to eat there, and sometimes we need to work there, too. But you get the point, right?)
