Comprobatio (com-pro-ba’-ti-o): Approving and commending a virtue, especially in the hearers.
We took them to the brink, they looked over the edge, they backed up a few steps, and they agreed to nearly every budget cut we proposed!
Well done my fellow fiscal conservatives!
Saving money is a good thing, and you helped us save you a bundle!
But, let me make this perfectly clear: We’re not done yet! Next, we take out Obama-care, then, we dismantle Medicare, and after that, we eliminate Social Security!
Now, my fellow Americans, I’m going back to my tanning bed, relax, smoke a cigarette, and quietly gloat.
Thank you for your support and encouragement. Victory is ours!
