Five ways that Washington legislators are killing time behind the scenes of ANOTHER overtime session.
1 Polishing their shoes, desks, stump speeches and parade waves.
2 Playing pranks on Supreme Court justices as payback for their %&$#?@! McCleary decision. (e.g., exploding gavels, itching powder in robes.)
3 Introducing urgent new bills that can’t wait until 2018, such as converting the Evergreen State College into a private institution. (Of higher education, we presume. Not psychiatric treatment.)
4 Drinking, eating tater tots and spilling secrets to News Tribune statehouse reporter Melissa Santos while she tapes her “Capitol Happy Hour” video show.
5 Performing animal sacrifices, yoga poses, car-tab burning rituals and other mystical customs during closed-door caucus meetings.
