The 90-s are calling "Behold the Welfare Queen!"

GREAT BLOG-- this guy walks the talk.

BEHOLD THE WELFARE QUEEN!

As soon as morning came, the Senate and the House, that is, the whole Congress, held a joint session with the Special Interest Groups and the Lobbyists for the Rich. They bound Welfare Mother, led her away, and handed her over to the President. Clinton questioned her, “Are you dependent?” She said to him in reply, “You say so.” So Clinton said to Congress, “What charge do you bring against this woman?” They answered and said to him, “If she were not a criminally pathological long-term trans-generational dependent, we would not have handed her over to you.”

The Congress accused Welfare Mother of many things. Again the President questioned her, “Have you no answer? See how many things they accuse you of.” Welfare Mother gave him no further answer, so that the President was amazed.

Then the President took Welfare Mother and had her beaten. And the police wove a crown of thorns and placed it on her head, and clothed her in a purple cloak, and they came to Welfare Mother and said, “Hail Welfare Queen!” And they struck her repeatedly. Once more Clinton went to Congress and said to them, “Look, I am bringing Welfare Mother out to you, so that you may know that I find no fault in her.” So Welfare Mother came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple cloak. And Clinton said to Congress, “Behold the Welfare Queen!” When the Congress and the Special Interest Groups and the Lobbyists for the Rich saw her, they cried out, “Crucify her! Crucify her!”

Now on the occasion of the feast the President used to release to Congress one prisoner whom they requested. A man called Keating was then in prison, along with others guilty of fraud in the Savings and Loan scam. The Interest Groups and Lobbyists for the Rich came forward and began to lobby the President for the customary pardon. Clinton answered, “Do you want me to release Welfare Mother?” For he knew it was out of envy, class prejudice, racism, covetousness, and greed that the Congress had handed her over.” But the Congress stirred up the Special Interest Groups to have them lobby for Keating instead. Clinton again said to them in reply, “Then what do you want me to do with the woman you call Welfare Queen?” They shouted again — “Crucify her! Crucify her!”

The President said, “Why? What evil has she done?” They only shouted the louder, “Crucify her! Crucify her!” So the President, wishing to satisfy the Congress, the Special Interest Groups, and the Lobbyists for the Rich, released Keatins the Savings and Loan Criminal and handed welfare Mother over to be crucified.
