Here's an idea

The incredibly exciting Dino Rossi idea about ideas is making the rounds, but we find the (ahem) idea of an "idea bank" to not be a very Republican idea, so we're improving the idea to make it reflect the ideas of Republicans more accurately.

Introducing the Dino Rossi Idea Payday Loan Center!™

Here's how it works:

Just bring in a your car title, paycheck stub or bogus prescriptions for "Limbaugh's Little Helpers" and give us an idea about how to make Washington a better place.

Examples include privatizing everything except one state trooper position, making the WEA illegal or requiring that black people show 15 different kinds of ID before trying to vote, and making sure at least one of those forms of ID is impossible to obtain without a trip to the Bahamas. But please, come up with your own ideas. If there's one thing Republicans are good at, it's being creative about stopping the wrong sorts of people from making a living or voting or doing anything but what they are told to do.

After you submit your idea, the Washington Republican Party will lend you $100 at an annual average interest rate of 6 million percent, compounded by the minute. If your idea is enacted into law, you will be refunded half the interest and presented with a small trophy featuring Rodin's "The Thinker" and a Hallmark electronic greeting, all FREE! (Offer void in King, Pierce, Snohomish, Thurston, Clark and Pacific Counties. Earnings may be subject to a small processing fee. The Washington State Republican Party reserves the right to make up any stuff it wants about anyone at any time.)
