America's sweetheart was asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife and replied, ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’
Spending other people's money can be so taxing. Lecturing the idiot populace on the proper use of salt, an intellectual snooze. Posing in a vegetable garden for a photo op, I can feel the heat of hell.

Gee, do you think the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (hello, stimulus money) had an eligibility rule that would prevent Congress from lining the pockets of their family with our money? You know, avoid the appearance of impropriety and maybe restore some trust with the American people.
Bingo, you guessed it; no such rule exists when it comes to Congressman taking care of their own with the money earned by their constituents. I wish I had a brother like Russ Carnahan, a Congressional Representative from Missouri. A very loyal Democrat and the best brother EVER. His brother, Tom, was on the receiving end of 107 MILLION DOLLAR grant of our tax money for his Missouri “Lost Creek Wind Farm” from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Holy Mackerel, you have to be kidding me. You know the corruption in Washington must permeate every decision these crooks make when they have the brass balls to hand 107 freakin’ million dollars to a Congressman’s brother (who, it is reported, quit his job as a lawyer around the same time his brother was elected to Congress…seriously, why work).
Congress’ Motto: “You work hard, so a Congressman’s brother doesn’t have to.”
