He Said, She Said

“Well, I’m glad that’s over with,” he said. “It was just becoming a farce.”

She smiled. “I know.  Now the Democratic Flee Party has to go back to work after their voluntary ‘exile’ in Illinois. The poor babies!’

He glared. “What are you talking about? That was not a farce! That was a tragedy! Scott Walker attacked the fundamental human right of workers to form a union. His argument was a sham–collective bargaining had nothing to do with the budget problems in Wisconsin. The unions agreed to his demands. Walker was union-busting, plain and simple!”

“Don’t lecture me about human rights! What was going on in Wisconsin was a comedy, just a bunch of teachers having a temper tantrum, and nothing more,” she said. “What happened in Japan was a tragedy. How many thousands have died or are missing? Hundreds of thousands are cold and are going without food and water. And you think what Governor Walker did in Wisconsin–asking public unions to share the sacrifice in fixing the budget–is a tragedy? That’s funny.”

“Don’t change the subject,” he said. “What happened in Wisconsin is not a comedy; Walker simply made unions the scape goat of a problem they did not cause! President Obama telling jokes at the Gridiron Club— now that’s comedy. I always thought he had the sense of humor of a two-by-four, but he showed some skills.”

“That’s just because he had someone write his material,” she said.

“Well, you have to admit he showed a lot of humility by–”

She interrupted him. “I don’t have to admit anything. The only thing I have to admit to is that I don’t know what you are talking about!”

“Oh. I was talking about the Sisyphus Awards. Bob Burnham won this week’s Stony.”

“Really? John Michael Bailey should have won,” she said.

“Well, at least we can agree on something,” he said.
