Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev) Majority Leader of the Senate and the entire Democrat Caucus, in a rare moment of solidarity, protest the possible inclusion of Ronald Burris, Governor Rod Blagojevich's pick to fill the seat vacated by Barack Hussein Obama.
According to tapes released by the prosecution, Reid was recorded speaking to the Governor a day before he was arrested. "Come on Rod, the senate is as full of Blacks as an NFL locker room. You walk through the doors and one is there holding it open. Around the corner you give one your coat and hat and get a chit. At the cafeteria one rustles up some ham and eggs and the southern senators have grits and the yankees have hash browns. His name is DeShamus and if you want eggs over medium, by God they're are done just right. TaWanda pours coffee and never lets your cup run out or get too cold. Why the Hell would you want to put another Black in the Senate.?"
With such prominent Blacks as Burris and Jesse Jackson Jr. who could get Budweiser and Schlitz Malt liquor wholesale, being excluded from Reid's recommendations, the Congressional Black Caucus insisted on a shoeshine kiosk, lavatory attendents and a barbershop or else they would riot. "Throw in a case of 40 ouncers and some ho's and you got a deal" a spokesman for the CBC said.
Senators Clinton, Boxer, Feinstein and Cantwell make sure the Cross embers are not too hot to start the hamburgers and hotdogs for the feast to launch the new congress.
