Some Laws I’d Like to Run Past Representative Bachman


I’ve always wanted Congress to pass a bill that came from my idea. Given that only Representative Michele Bachman (R-Crazy Town) would take any of these ideas seriously, I’m running a few ideas by her office.

  • A bill to bar the killing of live elves in action-fantasy epics
  • A bill to prohibit the Easter Bunny visiting between 3-5 a.m.
  • A bill to encourage Santa Claus to visit American children first
  • A bill to encourage compassionate conservatism.

Wouldn’t it be nice if members of Congress focused on real issues rather than appealing to the lunatic, hallucinating, One World Government John Birchers?

Yes, I did check with Representative Rehberg, but he was only receptive while in Kazakhstan, for some reason.
