WASHINGTON, DC - After being criticized for the "Slaughter Rule" being unconstitutional, Senator Harry Reid snapped at reporters, saying "if the Republicans want to vote, we'll let them vote ... real good."
When asked to clarify if "vote real good" meant "Reconciliation," the Senator replied "you'll find out soon enough."
Fortunately, the press corps found Nancy Pelosi nearby and was able ask about "Harry's Secret Vote Plan."
Nancy Pelosi: Oooo ... it's really good.
Reporter: So what's the plan?
Nancy Pelosi: It's secret.
Reporter: But only from Republican members of Congress.
Other Reporters: He's right, ma'am. [crosstalk] ... and we don't belong to Congress or the GOP.
Nancy Pelosi: Well, first, President Obama will sign an Executive Order to place electronic voting machines in Congress, and because electronic devices have been approved for ballot counting, they're legally valid under the Constitution.
Nancy Pelosi: Next, the SEIU, the AFL-CIO, and the New Black Panthers offer bids to provide electronic voting booths on two hours notice. The SEIU wins the bid, and puts their voting machines in Congress. If the GOP complains, Eric Holder will personally investigate their case, and ten minutes later he will rule in favor of the SEIU.
Nancy Pelosi: ACORN will be responsible for ensuring that members of Congress vote at the electronic booths which correspond to representative's districts throughout the 50 states. When the votes are counted, the Obama Health Bill passes with an extra two vote margin of safety!
Members of the press corp immediately congratulated Congresswoman Pelosi on her brilliant plan, and reassured her that the GOP was in for a surprise [wink, wink]. Unfortunately, we forgot to mention that The Spoof, FOX News, and the Rascal County Times (West Virginia) would do the surprising.
