"Ethics Bill Fails in Republican-controlled House, 206-8,342"

April Fool's Day is supposed to be a time of rejoicing for satire. The closest thing comedy gets to a religious holiday, outside of Purim. The problem is, sometimes things get handed you on a Silver Platter that transcend easy, so far beyond that it's simply not fair. It's like shooting fish in a soup bowl. (Example: that could have been, "It's like shooting your good friend in the face on a quail hunt.") Which faux-story do you choose to write? So many deserving targets, so few fingers with which to type them.

In the end, it's just too much for only one day. Because too often it seems like April Fool's Day is every day.
