In what one veteran Washington observer has noted, "This is probably the most disrespectful thing that has ever been done at a State of the Union Address!"
Leaked memos from the GOP caucus indicate the entire Congressional delegation in the Congress of the United States is planning to sit on Whoopee Cushions during President Obama's speech. The old party gag hasn't been seen much since the 1950's, but has gained popularity since the advent of the Tea Party.
If first reports are correct, Speaker of the House, John Boehner will start by sitting on his cushion just before Obama starts his speech. "This will blow his mind," said a Tea Party spokesman. "Speaker Boehner will be the First Responder, so to speak, followed by Congressman Joe Wilson, who, after all, started the idea."
A Democratic member of the House stated, "This is beyond the pale and the most disgusting thing I have seen in the halls of Congress, but what would you expect from a group of people that thinks a stand- up comic is someone who farts in a crowded elevator!"
Not all members of the caucus are participating, however. Senator John McCain told a journalist,"I don't need it." Several Senators that sit in close proximity to McCain, agreed.
In related news, a Tea Party spokesperson announced that the group would be selling the Whoopee Cushions on the internet. "Join us," he said, "and make a joyous noise unto the LORD, while exercising your first amendment rights!"
The cushions come in a variety of colors with discounts to church (Christian) and civic groups and will be available at: teapartyflatulence.web
