DURST: Recipies for a Beltway Shutdown
And now another delectable taste treat from that classic Washington Cookbook, "Recipes for a Beltway Shutdown." This bipartisan favorite is a hearty casserole sure to drive constituents mad with a pent up mouth watering thirst and those mischievous lobbyists back to the table time and again for more. So go to it, but remember, this savory dish is like revenge, best served chilled and not under the oven bright lights of August media exposure.FISCALLY MYOPIC BUDGET CROCKPOT1 bunch of tax cut proposals cut to look good (don't worry about quality)435 egos/ all sizes8-10 large sprigs of Presidential Ambition3 cups voter ambivalence1 pinch of reform, crumbled6 tablespoons of sticky motives8 ounces of intractable pride1 (55 gallon) drum of greed1 12 ounce beerDIRECTIONS:Toss the first four ingredients together in a moist overheated Rotunda, careful to shield the sprigs from exposure while separating the egos. Discard the reform and marinate until recess is imminent. Mix in the motives (use extra sticky if you can). Sprinkle the pride on top, and bury the whole thing in the greed. Have towed to sea by the FDA saving the beer to drink while you try to forget you're going to have to make the whole damn thing about 30 more times before its edible.Will Durst is thinking of fasting for a while.
