Good morning. On the, fully packed, 7:30AM into the City. Day Nine of the Shutdown.
So the argument from the SOTHOROTUS is that “We didn’t want to shutdown the government, but now that we did, we need to get something out of this before we restart the government. The POTUS can’t ask us for “unilateral surrender”.” He said that. Unilateral Surrender. The House Republicans are in this Arthurian-battle with “Big Government” and won’t let that government continue unless they get something out of it. Let that sink in.
Right. Down to business. Lauren Graham of Gilmore Girls and other family-drama fame is here. Her dark brown hair is tied into a logos bun and clipped to the back of her head. The fronds ant the end stick out of the bun like a shirt tentacle. She is not an unattractive woman. Black sweater, calico print skirt, black hose or leggings (very schoolgirlish). She is tethered to her iCrackerBot, probably listening to DMB or Hootie & the Blowfish.
Judy Baar Topinka is here, or it could be her sister. She has recent recolored her hair, which is now a ska-punk, day-glo orange. She is reading a $2 romance novel, with the picture of the shoulder-exposed senorita looking lustily down at her Moorish, buffed, Herculean beau as the background fades to white.
A decidedly French, or at least Gaul-looking woman is sitting next to the Comptroller if the State. She has features reminiscent of french actresses of recent repute – like the actress who played ‘Marie’ opposite Matt Damon in Bourne Identity. Dirty blonde or light brown hair, slightly unkempt. A fashionable teal scarf. Full lips. Almost boyish but obviously feminine.
Also here are Brad Meltzer, Corretta Scott King, Anita Rice, Dan Ackroyd, and four Bollywood movie producers. All are armed.
