Reportorial fellatio for Bowles (and his sidekick)

A Blow Job For Bowles (And His Sidekick)
Let me start by immediately apologizing for using the description of a sexual act in a headline and, particularly, in reference to an article written by a woman transcriber of press releases (formerly knows as “journalists”). Apology now behind me, I can go back to the point: Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson could not have paid enough money to get the kind of fellatio that they were blessed with by Jackie Calmes of The New York Times — the paper, by the way, that is making it a habit of putrid reporting about the phony debt and deficit “crisis”. I suppose having been a cheerleader for the Iraq War, to devastating effect to the country’s bank account (not to mention devastating to the families of all the dead people killed because of the immoral war), The Times just feels obligated to find something else to trumpet…phony as it may be.
Here is the reportorial sex act:
Theirs is an improbable buddy act that is making for unlikely entertainment from campuses to corporations on a most serious subject: the federal debt. The proof of their appeal: some business groups pay them $40,000 each per appearance. Really. To discuss budgets and baselines.
You get the picture: the two men, pushing against all odds, are continuing their valiant push to save the nation. It has the usual humorous anecdotes because, well, isn’t Simpson just so funny and folksy?
The rubbish, the rubbish. ..........................(more)
