  1. Washington actually has announced an airbag recall. Apparently, there are just too many hot airbags on the hill. There will also be a windbag recall. Old windbags are prone to lull users into complacency, while hot airbags are constantly setting off false alarms. The good news is that the old units will be recycled into fresh douchebags for tomorrow’s voters.
