Washington DC (IPP) - Top Republican and Democratic party power brokers joined forces today and decided to outsource the American Presidency to a Mexican gentleman whose name is Jose Consuelo.
The reason cited was that there were no good candidates running for office and a lot of money could be saved by outsourcing the job to Senor Consuelo who prefers to be called El Presidente de los Estados Unidos.
Sources have remained mum on the amount of money El Presidente will be paid but rumor has it that it is almost $11.00 an hour.
High pitched squeals of "Ay Chijuajua" could be heard reverbrating through the large party tent set up outside the White House. A mariachi band snaked through the crowd as the festivities celebrating the installation of the new Presidente began. The band sang (in perfect English) some Pink Floyd songs, "We don't need no education...."
It did not matter to El Presidente that GW Bush would remain in power until January. El President told reporters that he didn't mind living in a trailer at the nearby KOA and added that he would work for free in a position that runs parallel to that of President Bush until January.
The candidates John McCain, Hilary Clinton, and Obama are all reported to have said, "Oh, the hell with it" and were all on their way to Ellen Degeneres wedding.
