Border checkpoints in northern Vermont and Maine were overwhelmed as a horde of elected Democratic Lawmakers fled their home states to seek asylum in Canada and shield themselves from criticism from voters.
A spokesman for Border Security said, "I've never seen anything like it. It looked like the days of the Viet Nam War when all them hippies bugged out to avoid their service obligations!"
Because of the unprecedented log jam, a traffic helicopter was dispatched from Massachusetts to report on the 25 mile backups, and the national guard from the two states were called out to aid in processing asylum seekers, and to keep several lawmakers, citing seniority, from jumping the lengthening queue.
Adding to the confusion was the troubling fact that most lawmakers had left their families behind, preferring to 'go it alone' in Canada.
"Why would I take my family to Canada,' asked one lawmaker rhetorically, " back home they're exempt from ObamaCare, up here they'll be put on a waiting list. I may have voted for ObamaCare but I ain't F*****g stupak" (sic)
Adding to the problem, was the same size line trying to get into the States from Canada. Several Canadians interviewed said they were trying desperately to get into the US in order to get superior health care before the ObamaCare legislation went into effect and doomed them to an agonizing slow death. "What are we supposed to do now, " wailed one, " go to Thailand to have heart valve surgery?"
Reacting to the overwhelming influx, the city of Ottawa has thrown open it's welcoming doors to the persecuted lawmakers saying, " They'll be safe here!
We don't put up with none of that nasty racists criticism in our country, eh!"
Pundit Ann Coulter, herself a victim of recent criticism in Canada, and specifically in Ottawa, sold another 5m books, and quipped, "F****em if they can't take a joke, eh?"
