Moe Lane, defeated by reality:
If I understand this story correctly, the Amtrak station in Wilmington renamed for the Vice President (and Stimulus Czar) was not only an over-budget stimulus project; its dedication ceremony was complicated by the CEO’s inability to get to the soiree via Amtrak. His train broke down, you understand, so the poor man had to arrange for a car to take him the rest of the way.
See what I mean? Actually, reality has not only defeated me; it’s now looming over my prone form and taunting me about my mom.
But of course: in a fight pitting a satirist against reality, reality will win every time.
