Healthcare Impasse Blamed on Clowns

WASHINGTON, D.C. - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated failure to meet the President's legislative healthcare deadline was the fault of clowns. "Congress was set to pass a bill when healthcare clowns invaded the the chamber. They capered about, jumping into barrels, and otherwise distracting legislators who laughed and hooted instead of marking up the bill." Pelosi said the clowns carried whiskey in plastic hip flasks and shared it with members, who carry whiskey in gold and silver flasks. The Speaker sputtered in disgust, "Congress got so drunk, they left out all the pork. We had to flush the law and start over." Speaker Pelosi blamed the healthcare clowns on Republicans, but took full responsibility for the whiskey. "It's always been a problem around here. Frankly, Congress is much worse when they're completely sober. Don't even ask about the Senate." (Photo:
