The mid-term elections were either a stunning rejection of President Obama’s agenda or nothing more than a minor ripple in the vast sea of Progressive Politics – depending on your perspective and political persuasion.
However, since the Republican Party has captured the House of Representatives, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has a lot of free time on her hands. Perhaps now that she’s politically irrelevant, Nancy Pelosi can finally find the time to become the spokeswoman for Allergan’s BOTOX. Since she looks like a cross between Michael Jackson and Zsa Zsa Gabor, Botox-a-Pelosi is the perfect spokeswoman for the brand and will shore up sales with the MoveOn crowd.
In other news, the Obamacare healthcare reform bill contained a provision to tax indoor tanning salons. Over the summer, a new 10% tax on indoor tanning salons took effect – much to the chagrin of the new Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner and his Orangemen. Since Boehner will be more in the public eye than he has in the past, we’re looking for him to ramp up his already excessive orange appearance. Of course, the tanning tax will cost Boehner significantly, so I’d look for him to move quickly to try and repeal the tax.
No matter your political persuasion, you’ll have to agree big changes are afoot in the United States.
