[Making the Rounds]
A reader sends in this one:
"Members of Congress should be compelled to wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers, so we can identify their corporate sponsors."
Of course, it would never work. The print would be too fine to read.
--from George Ure's webssite at www.urbansurvival.com
Someone has mentioned that the bigger the campaign contribution or bribe, the bigger the logo ought to be. Pharmaceuticals and financials you'd see on your average congress member's new uniform--Merck, Pfizer, Goldman Sachs, or Exxon/Mobil.
Here's another fund-raising idea--Representatives and Senators could charge advertising fees for placing corporate logos on their uniforms, unless of course prohibited by campaign finance laws and regulations. Question is would Sen. Christopher Dodd's uniform look much different than, say, Norm Coleman's?
Naturally, the purest legislator in the land would be wearing a jumpsuit without any logos at all, except maybe one or two logos from an incorruptible non-profit company with a CEO serving at a very modest salary.
