Top of the morning

House Speaker Thom Tillis and the rest of the folks at the House Republican Caucus must be pretty confident these days, judging by the Caucus website.

The first thing you see on the site is a giant font is the statement “A FEATURE GRAPHIC.”  Click on the “Promises Made, Promises Kept” tab and it says “this is an example page,” with the following in italics.

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

Maybe it is a code that only Dallas Woodhouse understands.

    Well, you know, I’ve always thought that Paul Stam has had a deep-seated desire to be in show business. I think they accidentally copied something off his computer.

    Stam may have a desire to be in show business, but he does a poor job portraying a human being.

    This is actually standard text from a WordPress template. If you click on the “about” tab you will see the remainder of the template. I’ve pasted it below:

    This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

    “Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

    …or something like this:

    The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickies to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

    As a new WordPress user, you should go to your dashboard to delete this page and create new pages for your content. Have fun!”
