Life in the halls of power

In yet another illustration of the power of compensating differences, staff in the office of Congressman Rick Larsen, from the 2nd District in Washington State illustrate why Congressional staff jobs do not pay very much: you get to drink all the time and watch Nirvana videos!

And, of course, this provides yet another opportunity to fondly remember the follies of an earlier Congressional staff member who also struggled to keep herself busy: Jessica Cutler.

Hat tip: Soon-to-be Congressman Dan Marcin, who apparently is already planning how to staff his office.

Addendum: no happy ending here ... the aides were fired after the story broke.
