Traffic Delay in D.C.- How Much Would You Contribute?

A motorist, on his way home from work in Washington D.C., came to a dead halt in traffic and thought to himself "Wow, this traffic seems worse than usual."

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 in gasoline and set himself on fire. He says no one believes his stories about why we went to Iraq, or the worsening deficit and economy, or that the tax cuts will help anyone but his wealthy friends. So we are taking up a collection for him."

The man asks "How much do you have so far?"

The officer replies "About four gallons, but a lot of folks are still siphoning."
