The United States Senate has passed a resolution calling for all flags to be flown at half staff until the inauguration of a new president in January of 2009. The resolution was confirmed by an amazing margin of one hundred to zero!
President Bush, who was vacationing at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch in California, was very nonchalant about the action of the senate. "They're always trying to stir me up about some dang blame thing or another. Flags at half staff, like I really care. This just shows how unpatriotic the liberals are. They hate the flag and want to get rid of it. Taking it down to half staff is just the first step."
First Lady Laura Bush said in an interview on Fox News that she agrees with the action of the Senate, characterizing her husband's presidential performance as "utterly pathetic."
