Hello, Baby! This Is the Budget Bopper Speaking! Am I What?

Martin Kozlowski, 9/13/11:
The US budgeting process does not involve political in-fighting, or the battle of competing ideologies of governance, or even a bunch of hacks each trying to drag as much loot back to their home districts as possible.

No, the US budget is set by having a symbolic representation of the country pummel an inflatable dummy until something unspecified happens. This may perhaps explain why budgets tend to be so late and so misshapen.
