image for Obama Unveils New Statue in DC to Commemorate Commitment to "Ethics"!
DEMS to Taxpayers on ETHICS: You Haven't Even Seem My Best Side Yet!

Washington,DC/ Septic City News-All the News Fit to Flush - President Obama presided over a festive, but private, Democratic happening on the White House lawn with the dramatic unveiling of a bronze statue commissioned to reinforce the Democratic Value of Ethics in Government.

The statue of former hotel czar Leona Helmsley, popularly known in the US as the "Queen of Mean" debuted to raucous applause by a select handful of powerful democratic politicians and supporters.

Helmsley, a convicted Felon, will be forever remembered for her famous quote:


She did 19 months in prison for tax evasion and fraud, while continuing to be on a select list of Democratic Super Donors.

Attending the ceremony where former Senator Tom Daschele, Secretary Tim Geither, Charles Wrangle (sic), Nancy Killifer, and Rev. Al Sharpton, all staunch crusaders supporting the Helmsley Doctrine.

Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel provided a 2009 Chevrolet Corvette for photo ops. The laughing crowd took turns sitting behind the wheel and waving behind a sign embossed with "Vetting....You're Talking about Vetting....?" Everyone there thought it was quite hilarious.

Mingling with the crowd was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, vying for votes to become the next "Queen of Mean", Finance Chairman Barney Frank, and Senate Banking Chairman Dodd who still claims he got no special treatment for his 4.5% loans from Country Wide while the average American homeowner was paying 6.5-7%.

The party was catered and the snacks provided were $100lb. Kolbe steak Kabobs, vintage champagne, and some rare truffles discovered by rooting pigs, and enjoyed by same.

Music was prerecorded and featured "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Bank.

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