Thinking Outside the Box

by Mark Steyn

Andrew, re the heartless Republicans’ plan to cut off federally funded mime artists, wouldn’t it be inspiring if whichever branch of the SEIU represents mime artists were to bus them to Washington, and they could stand on the steps of the Capitol and, instead of doing that thing where they feel their way around a shrinking box, they mimed the debt ceiling being lowered and crushing them? I’m sure if they were to do that they could change the narrative on this whole Republicans-want-to-end-mime-as-we-know-it story.

PS. What about an all-star awareness-raising single? “I’m Proud To Be A Dole Mimer’s Daughter.”

UPDATE: A reader wonders:

Would a groundswell of support for the Mimes constitute a new “Silent Majority”?
