Capitol Hill Gets Exercised
Congress, its support at 14 percent in the latest Gallup poll, is having some self-esteem issues. Yesterday, lawmakers happened upon a novel solution.
The solution wore a red spandex tank top with glitter and stars. It had striped 1970s short shorts and leg warmers. And it stood on the terrace of the Cannon House Office Building during the lunch hour singing "Yankee Doodle."
"Get 'em up!" Richard Simmons shouted. "Here we go!" The aging fitness icon punched the air as he sang "I'm a Yankee Doodle DAAAAN-DEEEEE." Congressional staff members danced in lines behind him. "Scissors! Now, rumble! And, rainbow! Oh, yeah, baby!"
