An email exchange between friends that I was cc'ed on...
"Is our government still operational? I know it is dysfunctional, but what is going on now?"
"Our government is extremely operational! We’ve shut down time-wasting debate so the government can get to its top agenda items faster, such as stacking the senate, and not be bogged down with the minutia of some brown people being tortured on the other side of the planet. Hooray for our government! Hooray for the Action Plan!"
"Oh good, no reason to worry then. Sounds like everything's under control!"
