A sad story from Wash., D. C. this morning. Many officials and aides were so desperate to jump ship and remove themselves from the floundering Obama administration that they ran to the exits at the White House all at once and created a dangerous situation. They were so desperate to get OUT, they gave no thought to those trying to get IN. Several visitors hoping to get a tour of the White House were trampled and had to receive emergency medical treatment at a nearby hospital.
A visitor from Arkansas, who suffered a dislocated jaw in the morning stampede, said, "I thought this happened only once every four years." Rubbing his injured jaw, he added, "I didn't know it was on a two-year cycle. Next time I'll be more careful."
By afternoon, things were calmer. The Spoof has learned that the White House had hired some nuns to direct the outgoing traffic. "No pushing, no shoving, one at a time, one at a time," the stern sisters were heard shouting to the exiting hordes. The sisters also took it upon themselves to direct the numerous moving men who had been hired by various officials to empty their offices. One burly, tattooed, moving guy had a complaint about a particularly bossy nun. "She thinks she's Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act," he grumbled.
There's now word that even the first dog, Bo Obama, wants out. "I'm just not happy here any more, with all the turnover and all," he barked to friends. After a wistful sigh he added, "If only a Tea Party advocate would adopt me, I'd be outta here pronto."
