Longtime resident Lady Liberty, age 236 was struck by a stolen Chevy Volt last night along the interstate. The driver and passengers, illegally in the US from their native countries across the world, then dragged Ms. Liberty into the woods and brutally sodomized her before heading to the local polling place where they registered using the names of Supreme Court justices and voted without being challenged by UN poll watchers.
Authorities found them around the corner, each with a large supply of newly legalized recreational marijuana, getting high. They were taken into custody and released a short time later with a kiss on each cheek and a prepaid gift card for WaWa to handle the munchies.
Ms. Liberty is in extremely critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit, and doctors are very wary of her chances of recovery. A crowd of zombie-like citizens are already gathered at the Liberty residence, preparing to loot it of valuables when she succumbs to her injuries or the Death Panel declares her worthless and pulls the plug.
Not to get political here. This is just an observation of the actually party breakdown in the Senate. The reality is that the republican party, particularly in the Senate, is divided. There are really three parties. The Democrats, the Republicans and a ReDemricans. That 3rd party being comprised of Collins, Romney, Murkowski, Sasse, Toomey and a few others whose names I can recall right now. McCain was among them.
With this three party system in the Senate, where each generally stays unified, the Republicans haven’t has anything more than a super slim majority when there were 40 dems and Scott Brown won his seat, giving the Republicans and a Redemricans a combined 60 seats. The problem was that 3rd party, the Redemricans usually voted with the Dems.
