Your Tax Dollars At Work

Do you know what life was like in pre-Crisis DC?

It was pretty damn cool.

Take, for example, this car parked along the Potomac...

Yes, this was when Barbara Gordon was in Congress. Yes, this was when Batgirl started operating in Washington, D.C. at the same time there was a new red-headed Congressperson from Gotham...and no one put 1 and 1 together.

And, this was a time when Congresspersons and Senators went parking along the Potomac, because ROMANCE!!

Also... was a time when secret commando teams snuck into D.C. in front of legislators getting frisky in their cars. So what you gonna do, Barbara?

This was a time when Barbara wears her Batgirl costume under her street clothes WHEN SHE'S PARKING WITH A MALE SUITOR. Think about that, won't you?

Oh, and it was also a time when a 4 person "commando team" could effortlessly defeat the guards and take over the Pentagon. Really.

Well, it helps that one of them was really...

So why the Pentagon??

Goddman, I love comic books.

Batgirl, of course, figures out the perfect way to foil the scheme...

She blows holes  in the walls of the interior of the Pentagon. Boom.


But, of course, there's still the most important issue:

How to get back together with your hot Senator boyfriend!!
