Name: Super Congress, AKA Super Committee.

Turn-ons: Super PACs, Super fund-raising, super-marginalizing non-super congress.

Turn-offs: Constitutional government, Medicare, Howard Fineman.

How we got to be the BEAST Page 3 Super Congress: The debt ceiling proved too heavy for a non-super congress to lift, so they called us into existence, thwarting the twin plagues of representative democracy and electoral accountability.

Future plans: Hammering out completely awful legislation that will ensure the ruination of America, which the mere mortal congress can’t amend, and must pass, lest even worse legislation be “triggered” by their petulance in the face of our supreme superness. Also, probably a lot of cackling and lighting of cigars with hundred-dollar bills.

How we want to be remembered: As 12 heroes who used their superpowers to unite the nation–in poverty, thereby defeating our arch-nemesis, the dreaded John Maynard Keynes and his army of welfare queens.

    Bob Brinker called this group a “super gang” on his radio show. I think this is appropriate.
