WASHINGTON—At a moment of intense optimism after watching the nation’s retiring baby-busters take the stage for the opening ceremony of the annual White House Christmas Tree Ceremony, the nation’s retiring baby-busters announced that this was the year they would be able to see what the other side of the fiscal cliff would look like. “This is the year they will be able to see what the other side of the fiscal cliff will look like,” said retired baby-buster David Burke, adding that he — and the thousands of other baby-busters who will be able to see exactly where the fiscal cliff was and what all the fuss was about while they’re doing it—would be able to make a very important contribution to the future of the United States by simply not doing anything. “This is the year I, the only person who cares about the economy, will finally be able to finally see the other side of the fiscal cliff.” The retiring baby-busters then turned their attention to the crowd, where they were met with a standing ovation as the crowd began to disperse in a long, deafening round of applause.
