Barack Obama opened up a hornet's nest, dropped a bombshell, and every other cliche' you can think of when he announced his decision for his running mate in this fall's election. Filling out the ticket for the Democratic Party will be none other than Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan who recruited more than 150 friends and relatives into the organization in his youth.
When asked why he would chose a man known to be a racist and a bigot in his younger days, Obama answered by saying that "I've got to bring everyone in the Democratic Party to the Party. I've got to embrace all aspects and lifestyles of this great nation as we change to make change to complete change by fostering change in an attitude of change through change with changing changes."
"Too many members of our party are inbread Southern Hillbillies and Rednecks. If we want to once again have a Solid South, we must embrace this attitude and these people."
"In fact, the Senator invited me to a bbq and toga party somewhere in Arkansas next week to celebrate this announcement."
"Besides, as an undercover Muslim myself, I'm all for burning crosses."
