Follow-up on Government's Humor-in-the-Workplace Solicitation

As funny as the original solicitation was to hire a humorist to help the Bureau of the Public Debt, Senator Byron Dorgan as put a kibosh on the idea (the solicitation is now listed as cancelled). His comments are instructive for those who believe government has a sense of humor about itself. It doesn't.

“Of all the agencies, the Bureau of Public Debt should know that there is very little that is funny about today’s economic conditions,” Dorgan said in a statement. “I understand the need for motivation in the workplace, but I think we have a greater motivation to save the taxpayers some money.”

Sure, pal. But it's your party spending one TRILLION dollars (and that's not funny)!

Government in the humor business is as Orwellian as mortuaries in the sex business.
