Were you invited to the Party of Doom?

With just hours to go until a government shutdown, Congressmen couldn’t seem to agree on much except the fact that drinks were in order.
Reporters tweeted Monday night that they could smell booze on the lawmakers working to strike a last-minute spending deal on Capitol Hill:

Is this what we deserve? While American citizens were waiting for word on the inevitable announcement that the crazies in the Republican Tea Bagger Party had shut down our government, congress was slurping down cocktails.

From experience and observation, I know that within hours you can go from feeling invincible to rack and ruin. Once I was sitting in the intake room of a mental hospital around three in the morning. I was already inside when I heard the front doors swing open and a man and wife entered arguing. She was fed up and this time, he was going to get help. There were whispers as she filled out the forms. Having successfully admitted her husband, his wife stormed out the doors.

They escorted him into the intake room, he sat down beside me and proceeded to tell dreadful jokes. He was at the “let’s laugh at it all,” comedic stage. He tap danced a little and sat down across from me and whispered, “Do I know you?”

I did not know his name, but he worked in the same career field as mine and I had seen him.

“No, I am from Poland,” I answered.

The room was silent as we waited for someone to come for us. During this time, the man began to sober up. A night of bad decisions landed us together in a locked mauve-colored room, but it had taken months and years to work up to the big explosion, the highly regrettable event.

Like the Republicans Tea Baggers, that night we were the result of misunderstanding, resentment, and stupidity and drink. However, the current Tea Bagger Hissy-Fit will harm all citizens and the world was drawn up by elected officials who were drunk with power and liquor.

The elected representatives all claim to be religious and every time they are caught in a dalliance, well, you know the answer. They post it on billboards; spew forth on the internet and in prime time interviews collectively sigh that “God has forgiven them.” Who can argue with that?

But drinking on the job is a slap in the face of every American. The Republican Tea Baggers are like a bunch of drunk, mean cowboys riding into a town to rob the bank and burn down the buildings. They used to end of in jail, but today they are highly paid, praised and revered by the influence peddlers.

Let them have their party and set loose more chaos into the world. As the lady from Poland and the husband already know, that when the morning comes there will be unpleasant conversations and apologies. And like mornings, there is the next election.
