COURAGEOUS SENATORS STAND UP TO AMERICAN PEOPLE

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In the halls of the United States Senate, dozens of Senators congratulated themselves today for having what one of them called “the courage and grit to stand up to the overwhelming wishes of the American people.”

“We kept hearing, again and again, that ninety per cent of the American people wanted us to vote a certain way,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky).“Well, at the end of the day, we decided that we weren’t going to cave in to that kind of special-interest group.”

“It was a gut check, for sure, but we had to draw a line in the sand,” agreed Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S. Carolina).“If we had voted the way the American people wanted us to, it would have sent the message that we’re here in Washington to be nothing more than their elected representatives.”

Calling yesterday’s Senate action “a bipartisan effort,” Senator Mark Pryor (D-Arkansas) said,“This proves that on a matter that affects the safety of every man, woman, and child in the nation, we can reach across the aisle to defy the interests of all of them.”

Senator McConnell agreed that yesterday’s vote “sent a powerful message,” adding,“If the American people think that just because they voted us into office and pay our salaries, benefits, and pensions, we are somehow obliged to listen to them, they are sorely mistaken.”

It's supposed to be satire, true.

Alas, it's too close to the actual thing, to be as funny as it could have been...

Where? I saw him in my nearest town, High Wycombe. This is where he was educated. Technically he's brilliant, but he's also a bit rapey.

Jimmy Carr recently told this joke on UK's Channel 4:

"How do you make a gay f**k a woman?

Sh!t in her cu*t."

I knew you would notice that ;)

I left you a long winded, sorry, political rant on some other forum - I forget I've been into my bong too much tonight. Lol

But I'm certain you'll agree with what I said probably in answer with your thoughts as well
we both seem rather annoyed with our GUMMINT.

I can't say I ever liked Benny Hill...

How camp is Siri? "Broadway" is actually an unwittingly brilliant Siri "typo".

American Democratic Party is the party of Atheists, Agnostics, Christians, Jews,all faiths , Gays, Black and Latinos all united in mutual respect.

Most people of faith and non faith are good friends, often inter marry and respect each other.

The Siri I was referring to is an iPhone app
Is you speak Siri translates your voice

Siri is a feature on an iPhone that permits typing

Instead of typing select icon will as a microphone touching this activates Siri you then speak press done and everything you said will be placed on the screen

I have not typed since I got the iPhone 4S

Very smart and useful device I love my iPhone
And is been jailbroken

I am fully aware of what Siri is, that's why I put quotes around "typo"! I'm still on iPhone 4, though.

Hmm. I got to hit my bong again

Sorry for the confusion Siri
My confusion that is!

Yes I agree the Broadway is unwittingly brilliant
I vainly and I do mean vainly attempted to say the word 'bright' is the dialect which would sound similar to... Brawt

Always look on the Brawt side of life...

Always look at the bride side of death do do do do do just before you draw your terminal breath

Monty Python I really miss these guys
