The Super Committee and frozen turkeys (Cartoon)

ALTON BOG, Maine – November 23, 2011 - Not only could they get nothing done, reports are they were never even close to agreement. “Super Gridlock” is a better term.

Some people warned this would happen, but others were hopeful for a last minute solution.

It’s a good thing the Super Committee wasn’t in charge of Thanksgiving dinner. The oven would be cold, the turkey still frozen, and the cranberries still in the bog. Come to think of it, things have been in the bog for a long time in DC.


Platypus Politics?

An old joke claims that a platypus is an animal put together by a committee. At least the platypus is a viable animal, even as mixed up as it appears. Nothing viable came out of the Super Committee, unless you count the proof of how utterly disappointing it was.


I’m afraid they have given Obama the excuse he needs to fully circumvent Congress, thereby ignoring the constitution to get what he wants. His mantra of “We can’t wait” may soon take on a darker tone. This “do-nothing” government just might become a “nothing-you-can-do” government.
