Back to the Drawing Board

The $100,000 Power Line Prize was announced last week. One hundred grand will be awarded to “whoever can best and most creatively dramatize the significance of the federal debt crisis”.

Today, it was announced that Hugh Hewitt will be one of the judges. Great. I had already finished the outline for my puppet show comparing the federal debt crisis to the historic futility of the Cleveland Browns football team.

Back to the drawing board.

The Elder Concurs: The decision to have Hugh judge this important contest is lewd, lascivious, salacious, and outrageous. One of the most important qualities of a judge is their impartiality and clearly we can expect no such objectivity when it comes to Mr. Hewitt. Despite this obvious handicap, we will continue to run ideas up the flagpole here at Fraters Libertas World HQ in our on-going efforts to secure the prestigious Power Line prize. We obviously don’t want to reveal any trade secrets that could aid our competition, but to give you a flavor of the discussions underway here is a transcript of a recent conversation:

Saint Paul: I just want to say two words to you - just two words.

Atomizer: Yes sir.

Saint Paul: Are you listening?

Atomizer: Yes I am.

Saint Paul: 'Seed art.'
