Drowned out by all the media hoopla surrounding the Tea Party victories, is the fact that Donald Duck actually won many of the races.
Election officials in several states have confirmed that this is indeed the case. However, since the results won't be certified until next year, the decisions on whether or not to allow Mr. Duck to hold office have been postponed.
It was a close call between Mr. Duck and other write-in favorites, such as: Mickey Mouse, Darth Vader, and The Joker, but it was the anthropomorphic bird who clearly came out on top. With the campaign slogan, If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, it must be a duck!, no one had a chance.
Many called for unity in their concession speeches, with the exception of Miss Piggy, who claimed discrimination because, "she's a woman and a pig."
Both Democrat and Republican party leaders are crying foul and demanding an investigation into voter fraud, but it's clear that the American people are sending a message. They're fed up, and who better to represent that anger than a quack with a bad temper.
A spokesman for Disney declined to comment, however, Mr. Duck was quoted as saying, "Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!"
