An intern had been with the office for a few weeks, and the Legislative Director wanted to give her a substantial assignment to work on:
LD: What issues are you interested in?
Intern: [thinks for a moment] Yes.
LD: Um, no, I mean, what legislative issues do you find interesting? Do you like health care?
Intern: Yes.... I mean.... No. Because health care deals with sick people, and sick people make me sad.
[and a comment]
I'm guessing this intern never got her substantial assignment...
Dumb people make me sad, so I guess I'd better not work on education issues.
