WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama, after hearing the Rev. Al Sharpton's tribute speech to Michael Jackson during the Michael Jackson Memorial Service has asked him to join his cabinet as chief speech writer.
As the president watched Rev. Sharpton on television giving his tribute to Michael Jackson, he reportedly turned to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and remarked, "My goodness Hilly, that there brother can flat out surely put some words and thoughts together."
The president added that he had not heard anyone deliver such a fantastically awe-inspiring speech since the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. did at a Cubs-White Sox baseball game.
When Rev. Sharpton was told that the president wanted him to become his speech writer it is reported that he got down on his knees and began shouting "Hallelujah, hallelujah, I's fixin' to goes to the White House to be Brobama's word man."
Vice-President Joe Biden said that Rev. Sharpton would be replacing the president's current speech writer, Bernie Taupin, who for decades has been Elton John's lyricist.
Biden beamed with pride when he revealed that Taupin would now become his speech writer replacing his current speechwriter Snoop Dog's cousin, Alonzodell "Moon Dog" Jefferson.
When Michelle Obama was asked what she thought about all of this speech writers 'musical chairs' that was going on she simply replied, that if her honey (the president) is happy then she's happy.
She then added that she did kinda like Bernie Taupin because he made all of her husband's speeches rhyme real pretty.
