Earlier this week, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) offered some pointed remarks from the Senate floor. He blasted “radical Tea Party Republicans,” lambasted “mainstream Republican colleagues, who remained silent even as the anarchists among us committed political malpractice,” and then proclaimed, “This work period, the Senate will consider the…”
a. “…Twerk for Work Act, which would provide incentives to employers who hire unemployed Miley Cyrus wannabes who shake what their mamas gave them.”
b. “…Fox; specifically, a bipartisan effort to learn what does the Fox say?”
c. “…Employer Handbook. As in, why do people actually read the drivel that spews each morning from Meyer’s digits?”
d. “…Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would provide basic protections against workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.”
If you guessed A, make sure your EPL premiums are paid up.
If you guessed B, put down the drugs.
If you guessed C, go to hell.
If you guessed D, bravo. Treat yourself to a caramel macchiato; your powers of deduction are amazing! And hey, you also got 200 points just for signing your name on your SATs.
I’ll update you after the Senate takes up ENDA in a few weeks.
