Running up the fiscal cliff

Well folks here we go again, another run up to the fiscal cliff. To fully understand the true wonders of this impending disaster one must be aware of the cause of this annual event. It appears as if somewhere in the long series of evolutionary events a lemming and an

elephant fell in love, got married and had many children. So my fellow Americans this is what brought about the fiscal cliff because if you cross an elephant and a lemming the offspring will all be Republicans which can be easily identified by their tendency to move very slow and jump off cliffs.
