Acting congressional

The new year has given me reason to reflect upon my preceding year.

Like President Obama and the U.S. Senate and House, I overspent money, but accomplished little. Unlike them, I didn't use any other people's money for my expenditures and I did not spend more than my income.

When I do not agree with someone, I can be nearly as stubborn as the party leaders. I don't play well with the others unless I get my way. I guess I could learn to lie, spend vast amounts of money, accomplish nothing and act like a spoiled child.

Should I announce my candidacy? I have some of the qualifications and could learn the rest. My first actions will be to pledge to turn down any pay raise, limit my term length and vote to cut the size of Congress from 535 members to approximately 200.

See, I've already learned how to lie.
