    I vote for “I’ve got a great new angle on immigration…”

    “I’ve got a great new angle on immigration …”

  • Mo

    Agreed. New angle on immigration!

  • Chuck

    This is BS…”I hope I get Foreign Affairs” was by far the best, with the most votes. Editors have zero sense of humor. “Who wants to join my Love Caucus”? For real, that’s corny.

      The people who left “I hope I get Foreign Affairs” all probably read Gail Collins’s column in the New York Times last week that ended with that comment. Since Gail Collins is widely read in Washington, my suspicion is that the editors of Roll Call felt that since Gail Collins did not enter this contest, someone who cribbed her humor should not be included, since most readers would know that is where it came from. I don’t know this for sure, but it’s more than plausible.

    “I hope I get Foreign Affairs” was brilliant…None of these come close.
