I was preparing a pithy piece about the recent elections but at times it’s impossible to compete with the good people at The Onion:

WASHINGTON—Dismayed by the fact that over the past 24 months they have not experienced the immediate short-term personal gain they had hoped for, Americans went to the polls Tuesday and, for the 112th consecutive time, elected the candidates they deserve. “It’s my duty,” Reading, PA resident Bethany Albertson said as she cast her ballot and joined the staggering majority of citizens who, like every single previous generation of voters, will reap exactly what they have sown. “I haven’t seen much difference in my paycheck, and we need a voice for change in our government.” Exit polls indicated most voters will be content with what they’ve got coming to them as long as they see sharp reductions in taxes, health care costs, home foreclosures, economic regulation, unemployment, and the national debt by the time the 112th Congress is halfway through its first legislative session.
