Wasted Time

“This is a theft of my time.” -- A lobbyist expressing frustration at consistently late JFC starts.

“Maybe they're not aware, but there's a blood drive going on downstairs. They could go down and donate blood. It would be the first and only contribution they've made to the budget process so far.”-- A Republican staffer's retort to complaining lobbyists.


Ummmnnnhhh--the Republican staffer doesn't understand. Lobbyists SUCK blood--they don't GIVE blood.

And at the rate lobbyists are paid ($150.00/hour and up), I find it hard to be sympathetic to complaints of earning money by standing around waiting.
