The Mayor of Cairo, Illinois, Judson Childs, called on the President this morning to send the National Guard to his city. The mayor, secluded in his home and surrounded by a cordon of local police issued his frantic plea for help in what some are calling one of the biggest snafus of the twenty-first century.
Apparently, Tea Party leaders, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann mistook the fact there was more than one Cairo in the world and rushed to take advantage of a developing story. They sent out a call to their followers via Face Book and Twitter and thousands are now in the streets of this Midwest American city.
The two women riding nude on white stallions marched through the streets of Cairo shouting, "Let our people go," and "Second amendment rights, now and forever!"
The two women were arrested and taken to the Cairo jail. Several hundred camera phones were confiscated by National Guard troops after the women rode through the streets, including those of Cub Scout Troop #39. Several of the young boys were referred to Child Services for counseling.
In related news, Palin and Bachmann issued a statement titled: "Letter from the Cairo Jail." When Ms. Palin was asked if a terrible mistake had been made in confusing the two Cairos, she replied with a smug grin, "When you've seen one Cairo, you've seen them all!"
