Re: My Retirement
I no sooner announced my retirement on January 10 than a bunch of my loving constituents threw me a party – look at this cake!
Here they are, all lined up along the street, waiting to wish me well in person:
Of course, they’ll all have to look up, because as everyone knows, I like to hang out on the roof of my office whenever my constituents are around:
And yes, I’m going to stick around and finish my term, mostly because I enjoy being known as “The Richest Man in Congress.” None of this “Richest Man in the House of Representatives” stuff for me! Nice picture, yes?
In conclusion, to clear up any questions, I’ve written a little ditty with music from that Evita show:
Madonna as Evita…
Darrell as Evita.
Don’t cry for me, California
I am the richest man
In our Congress!
In case you’re worried
To ease your tension
Of course I’ll also
Collect my pension!
