Democratic Party Changes Name to Undemocratic Party
"We've done the research and crunched the numbers," said party Chairman Tim Kaine, "and people don't want to run their own lives. They want a bunch of lawyers who take bribes in order to get elected to run their lives for them. And that's what the Undemocratic party is all about. No one wants democracy anymore, except the majority of Americans, and who cares what they want anyway?"
In line with the new name change, the Undemocratic party has announced a new election strategy which will consist of pointing nuclear weapons at swing states, until they agree to swing their way.

Health Care Too Important to be Left to the American People
Barack Obama congratulated Congress on its determined willingness to pass a bill that no one besides unions, lobbyists and congress actually wanted.
"Today by reforming health care we have sent a decisive message to the American people that health care is too important to be left up to them. It's time we put an end to the idea that people can take care of themselves. People can't take care of themselves. That's what government is for."

Republican Party Accused of Racism for Refusal to Support National Wax Museum Bill
Convicted Democratic congressman Alcee Hastings accused Republicans of a "Blatant campaign of racial hatred and intimidation" because of their refusal to support his bill calling for the creation of a National Wax Museum.
"The idea that there are still people today who would reject spending 2.1 billion dollars to create a museum where children of all races could come and see wax figurines of me, one of the greatest figures in American history is shocking," said Congressman Hastings. "There is only one possible reason for their refusal, and that's racism."
New York Times columnist Bob Herbert agreed. "Every time I think that we've moved on from Selma and George Wallace. From the mobs that beat civil rights workers and burned churches, the Republicans obstinately decide not to support another Democratic piece of legislation, and then it's just like Bobby Kennedy was assassinated all over again."
