CR Dunbar: Government at Work

Economic Crisis? Who cares. Spiraling deficit? So. Entitlement programs run amok? Ah well.

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on a resolution honoring the Florida Gators and their BCS National Championship. The much-needed legislation finally puts members of Congress on record with declarations such as:

  • The Gators have become one of the premier athletic and academic institutions in the country;
  • The Gators improved their BCS Championship game record to 2-0;
  • The Gators finished the 2008 season with a 13-1 record, matching the single-season school record for wins (also 13-1 in 2006);
  • Coach Meyer became the 14th youngest head coach to win a pair of national titles since 1950;
  • Tim Tebow showed why he is one of the most versatile quarterbacks in college football history by completing 18 of 30 passes for 231 yards and 2 touchdowns and rushing for 109 yards, the third highest ground total by a quarterback in a BCS title game;
  • Florida's defense held Sooner quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford to 256 passing yards, his third-lowest of the season and his first two-interception game since October 11, 2008;
  • The Gators' players and coaches football team represent the University of Florida and the State of Florida with honor and integrity;

Thank you, Nancy, for tackling the tough issues with a smile on your face.

I've been saying it for years - replace all 535 members of the House and Senate with well-trained chimpanzees.
