As far from bipartisanship as ever, Republicans and Democrats are now bickering over who should have exclusive rights to the use of a new sign.
The sign features an intense, determined looking Uncle Sam. Most people recognize him from a recruiting poster which has been used for years by the United States Army. It read: "I want you for U.S. Army."
Now, however, Republicans and Democrats alike are claiming for themselves a new version of the sign which reads: "We'll pay damned good money for all corrupt bastards."
"The sign belongs to the Democrats", screamed DNC chairman Howard Dean. Vice President Richard Cheney saw things differently. "We, the Republicans are the ones who pay top dollar for corrupt bastards, the Dems are just a bunch of wannabes. Have you ever heard of Watergate, Iran Contra?", Cheney challenged. Louisiana Representative William Jefferson, who was recently indicted on numerous charges and who is infamous for having some $90,000 cash in his freezer, retorted by saying that he epitomizes the true corruption of the Democratic party. "Show me a Republican with my kind of cold, hard cash. I dare you!"
