In the Office

From The Far Left Coast (satire)

Beard: Hello. This is the Governor speaking.

Inouye: I know who you are, Neil. I put you there.

Beard: Sir! It's you!

Inouye: Neil?

Beard: Sir?

Inouye: Shut up.


Inouye: Neil, it doesn't seem like you are out ahead of all these budget issues. I am afraid it shows too. All the proposals from your state of the State speech are falling flat.

Beard: But sir, I warned you about all the old people getting pissed. But the advisors you sent me said that because they aren't active union members, I should pay no attention to them, because they are the only logical group, aside from the population in general, who should get hit. But that's exactly where everything came unraveled. And, if I may say, sir,

Inouye: Neil?

Beard: Yes, sir?

Inouye: Shut up. First of all, the election is over, so you don't need to worry about old people. It's not that they count, it's just that you can't propose screwing them during a campaign. The only thing that matters, at least for the next few years, is the union vote, the union vote, and the union vote. Am I making things clear, Neil?

Beard: Uh. Yeah. But I

Inouye: Neil! You need to get back up! Your speech was good for maybe a week. After that you need to get out there with another message, if for no other reason than to muddy the waters.

Beard: Um. Ok sir, I think

Inouye: All right Neil. Get a flight out here as soon as you can. Tell people you're going to get federal money. I will arrange some more coaching.

Beard: Oh, thank you, sir! I need your help, what can I say. And, can I really get some federal money?

Inouye: Shut up.
