Moammar Gadhafi announces run for GOP Presidential Nomination

May 31, 2011

LIBYA – Speaking from an underground bunker somewhere near Tripoli, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi announced his run for U.S. President.

“I mean, there’s a lot going on right now,” said Gadhafi, who is simultaneously being attacked by Libyan rebels and NATO forces. “But the field just seems so, you know, empty.”

Gadhafi’s bid received an endorsement from conservative leader Bill Kristol, who said he was “dazzled” by the dictator’s humor and conservative ideals on a recent Conservative cruise for politicians and donors.

“The more I talked to him, the more I realized that he’s the one,” said Kristol, who will be on Fox News at least once a day until November 2012. “His concepts of executive power fit perfectly with the party.”

For his part, Gadhafi – who has said he would continue being leader of Libya should he become the U.S. President (“A leader must be able to multi-task.”) — said he thinks he can woo a good many GOP voters.

“I’m pro-life, as far as fetuses go. Right there, I win the social conservatives,” said Gadafi, a Virgo. “And you don’t even what to know my thoughts on the poor.”

While many have said the run is unconstitutional because Gadhafi was not born in the U.S., others have concerns that he has America’s best interests at heart. Gadhafi – who will run using the slogan “Why the Hell not?” – brushed aside such worries.

“First off, Obama got around the citizenship issue and so will I,” said Gadhafi, drawing big laughs from CNN’s Erick Erickson, an early supporter. “But hey, the GOP is not about what’s right for America. It’s about oil and money and I know both well.

“Plus, seriously, they have such a bunch of stiffs running,” added Gadhafi, who then fled the room to an undisclosed hiding location.

Already, Gadhafi has interviews lined up for later this week with ABC, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, BET, Fox News, WGN, Nickleodean, ESPN, Al Jazeera, ESPN-2, Lifetime, and OWN.

Eric Cantor & GOP Take Tornado victims hostage

May 24, 2011

Yes, Virginia, the Republicans are taking federal relief for tornado victims hostage:

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Monday that if Congress passes an emergency spending bill to help Missouri’s tornado victims, the extra money will have to be cut from somewhere else.

“If there is support for a supplemental, it would be accompanied by support for having pay-fors to that supplemental,” Mr. Cantor, Virginia Republican, told reporters at the Capitol. The term “pay-fors” is used by lawmakers to signal cuts or tax increases used to pay for new spending.

Maybe they could wait until people actually stop dying before they take advantage of this crisis?


Dead Elf challenges entire GOP presidential field to debate on Constitution

May 24, 2011

MINNESOTA – A wayward elf that froze to death in the snow last December has challenged the entire GOP Presidential Field to a debate on the U.S. Constitution, sources close to the Dead Elf say.

“He’s pretty confident. Or IT is pretty confident,” said the source. “I’m really not sure how to refer to an Elf corpse.”

The challenge comes after literally two consecutive years of Republican Presidential hopefuls butchering the Constitution in order to make it appear it agrees with their often-outlandish views. The most recent come from Pizza Guru Herman Cain, who confused the Declaration of Independence with the Constitution, while admonishing his fan base for not actually reading the Constitution.

The challenge comes shortly after a 16-year-old high school student challenged Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann to a debate on the Constitution. While Bachmann has ignored the challenge, Republican sympathizers have berated the girl with threats.

“They can try, but they can’t shake up this Elf Thing,” said the Source. “It’s dead. It can’t get shook. And it can’t make anywhere near as many mistakes about the U.S. Constitution as Republicans make.

“And at very least, it can’t confuse the Constitution with the Declaration of Independence,” added the Source.

Koch Brothers Big Donation Gives Them Final Say on Rapture

May 17, 2011

HEAVEN – Following a staggering donation to the Heaven Fund, the Koch Brothers will now have final say on who gets Raptured. sources tell this reporter.

David and Charles Koch – who combined are worth $43.5 billion – recently made headlines when it was learned that they had essentially taken control of the economics departments of such public colleges as Florida State University. In the FSU case, the Koch Brothers donated $1.5 million to the economics department, but with the caveat that the money could be taken away should the brothers disagree with any new hires.

With the Rapture less than a week away, the Koch Brothers decided now was the time to get things right with eternity.

“There’s no way in hell that we’re spending eternity next to ordinary Americans,” reportedly said David Koch. “It was spendy, but it’s worth it.”

The amount the Koch Brothers donated to the Heaven Fund – a public entity – has yet to be announced. A spokesman for the fund spoke of the good the money will do.

“This is really a Kochsend, you know,” said the spokesman. “Now we can have upgrade our ‘Two-Minute Hate / Wine-Tasting Cathedrals.’ Praise the Koch Brothers!”

The spokesman added that the likely list of who shall be Raptured on May 21 is down to roughly 400 people.
