It is doubtful many of you cynical bloggers believe in Santa Claus. You should if you don't want to wind up with a lump of coal in your stocking.
Yes, Santa is real. She's jolly, somewhat rotund, loves kids and hails from Texas by way of D.C. Yes, Virginia and Virgil, Santa is U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX). She's a member of the House's Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and chairs the Water Resources and Environment subcommittee.
The Kansas City, Mo., city council moved to get on the Hope and Change Rearranger's economic stimulus project list shortly after the Prez-elect announced the New-New Deal. It needs 2.4 billion dollars for a sewer project. So today they held a party for Congresswoman Johnson where a batch of inner-city kids wearing green helmets sang and told her how the sewer would help the environment.
She told the attendees there were 2,ooo other projects in the queue already and it was unlikely the city would receive sewer money during the next year. I don't know if that means that the Kansas Citians haven't been good enough this year or Congresswoman Johnson just wants to come back next year for another holiday party.
