Until Now, I've Been Sneezing In My Hands And Touching Every Doorknob I Could Find

Thanks goodness for our elected officials!  Without them, we’d be so much more unsanitary!

At a press conference yesterday, Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) and Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) reminded us to wash our hands.

“It’s amazing how such a small thing can make such a big difference,” Senator Heller said.

Yes it is!  I’m sorry that my mom never told me to do that.

Senator Reid added his two cents: “The fact is, simply washing your hands can cut down the transmission of flu, for example, by 50 percent. If you wash with water, it’s better than nothing, but it’s not as good as if you have soap.”

With soap?!  Ah, now I get it.

With all of the annoying distractions that Senators face, like the massive deficit, sluggish economy, unaffordable entitlements and a president who has made a mess of foreign policy, just to name a few, it’s good to see that they have time to spend on really pressing matters like informing the great unwashed about proper hygiene.

I also have to wonder if those evil Koch brothers intentionally DON’T wash their hands.  I’m sure Senator Reid will let us know soon.
