A to-the-point shutdown message from job listings site Monster.com makes fun of the assorted leaders in the U.S. government, by advertising for a number of "senior leaders," in an ad placed by "the people of the United States of America." The listing has a number of gems, like a requirement that says "no past political experience required," and "must be able to balance a checkbook." It goes on to say: "Apply on monster.com only as government offices are currently closed. No phone calls, please." The ad was created in-house, and sparked by the news of an NBC/WSJ poll that found that 60% of Americans wanted to replace the entire Congress.
