A lobbyist on his way home from work in Washington, DC came to a stop in the traffic and thought to himself,
"Wow, this traffic seem worse then usual."
Then he noticed a police officer walking between the lines of stopped cars so he rolled down his window and asked,
"Officer, what's the holdup?"
The officer replied, "The President is depressed so he stopped his motorcade and is threatening to douse himself with gasoline and set himself on fire. He says that no one believes his stories about why went to war in Iraq, or that his tax cuts will help anyone except his wealthy friends. So we're taking up a collection for him."
The lobbyist asked, "How much have you got so far?"
The officer replied:
"About forty gallons but a lot of people are still siphoning their gasoline."
