Sen. Foghorn Leghorn (D): ‘Working for TX-45. Working for YOU.’
This has been circulating around the Hill today; some kind, cruel soul from there took the trouble to forward it to me. Twenty-four hours and they still haven’t fixed recovery.gov: remember how we got told that the new administration was going to bring us into this new, wonderful Web 2.0 reality? These guys can’t even get a database up and running properly. Heck, they can’t even be bothered to check typical search results for garbage before they take said database live.
PS: At them. We are all laughing at them. Not with.
