McCain's got his suitcase packed.

Last night's debate between Presidential candidates, Barrack Obama and John McCain, heavily focused on their vision for helping the nation out of economic trouble.

Barrack Obama pledged to only raise taxes for those Americans making more than $250,000, unless that American is a member of the Hollywood, a lobbyist, a Senator, a radical domestic terrorist, a Chicago slumlord, or a democrat. All other Americans would not have their taxes raised unless the taxes raised by all those left paying taxes was insufficient to fund the numerous social programs promised by the Democratic candidate, including Universal Healthcare for all Democrats.

Answering a question regarding the growing unemployment rate, Senator Obama urged all Americans, if possible to do like he did: marry a Harvard lawyer. "Harvard lawyers make cash and are great to have if you are negotiating to buy a new car". Senator Obama also urged Americans to think about becoming a Senator. "The starting salary for a Senator is $130,000, which means I won't tax you- unless you are a Republican".

John McCain pledged that not only would he not raise taxes, and not only would he continue George W. Bush's tax reform checks, but he would also give a pony to every eligible American family with a dependent.

Responding to a comment that his proposed economic reform policy was completely unfeasible, unrealistic, and, at best would plunge the US economy deeper in to recession; Senator McCain stated: "Have you seen the legs on my running mate? It doesn't matter- you are going to get to see those legs for the next eight years. I can personally guarantee, in an effort to reduce government spending, I will ensure Sarah Palin only wears skirts, which everyone knows is cheaper than those pant suits other female politicians like to wear".

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
