Me, an advisor to the President
So today I get a very interesting call, from someone representing Senator Kohl. I was asked if I could join a Presidential Advisory Committee of Small Business Owners. I would be the representative from Maryland, attend a dinner in our honor with President Bush, and even receive a National Hero Award for my service.
Now technically I do own a business, but this would be kind of a joke because Darby and I are its only employees. But they told me that Nancy Pelosi is dead set on making people like me, the backbone of our countries economy, pay extravagant taxes and that this Advisory Committee would be our last line of defense.
I have to admit, my interest and curiousity is piqued. Though no fan of Bush, this would be a fun story at the least. But something doesn't sound quite right, so I ask the question. "Is there a required donation to join this Committee?"
Sure enough, yes. They are requesting that every Representative donates $300-500 to take out a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal to combat Pelosi's anti-small-business agenda.
Hmm, so that's all a National Hero Award costs these days, huh?

So basically you fund somebody's mudslinging campaign and in return you are given a "national hero award." Maybe if you pay double you can get a purple heart so you can run for president.

That would really be something if you were on an advisory committee to the president, however, this is just slimy.
I loathe those blanket type statements like, Nancy Peolosi is dead set on making life tough on you. I would have asked him specifically which legislation and policy statements they are in opposition to.
Politicians = yuck
