"The Secret Service presented options. The White House made the decision that we would unfortunately have to temporarily suspend these tours."
Well, on the Fox News Channel - Eric Bolling, former commodities trader turned talk host - proposed a solution.
"Word is, it will cost around $74,000. If I can get the White House doors open, I will pick up the tab. Mr. Carney, you know this is an offer you can't refuse. Give me a call."
Bolling hosts a show called "The Five." His other four panelists seemed stunned.
"I think we just realized "The Five" isn't your primary source of income!" laughed one.
"If Kimberly and I volunteer to do the tours, can we get in on that scratch?" asked another.
But he's serious. "I will absolutely write the check."
And if that's what it takes - if well-off Americans would rather pay a la carte instead of the additional taxes the President wants, why not take the deal?
In fact, since Congress can't pass a budget, since the President is so desperate he's started treating the members to fancy meals, plying them with Lobster Thermidor - a pox on them all!
They had their chance. We have the Internet now. The White House can post a list of the cuts, and anyone with money who feels strongly about them can use one-click ordering to put it on their Pay Pal account.
It's no more arbitrary than what's going on already.
