As Martin Bashir points out, what kind of job pays $174,000 a year, gives you nine weeks vacation and doesn’t expect you to do much in return?

President Obama made some digs yesterday asking Congress to lower student loan rates and make it possible for underwater homeowners to refinance their mortgages before “going on vacation” from legislative work, and Bashir took the message and ran with it. Little Luke Russert? Not so much.

Congress is "very upfront in the beginning of the year about what their schedule is," Russert said. He said this was "emblematic of the problems with our system," including gerrymandering and the money in the political system.

Bashir interrupted him: "Our listeners just heard champagne corks popping in the background!", telling the nervously laughing Russert, "this isn't funny!".

Young Luke explained that it was just a belated Queen’s Jubilee celebration.

Bashir retorted, "I thought we had a constitution that did not include monarchs and barons." Hah!
