Up with some things we cannot put...

From The New Yorker:

A rising chorus of congressional Republicans are calling on President Obama to acknowledge that the pop singer Beyoncé lip-synched during his inaugural festivities on Monday and resign from office, effective immediately.

“By lip-synching the national anthem, Beyoncé has cast a dark cloud over the President’s second term,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky).  “The only way President Obama can remove that cloud is by resigning from office at once.”

Hilarious. Gotta love 'em.

It's even more ridiculous than having tax evasion send Al Capone to prison for life.

Anyone have a camel-sized toothpick for our Republican friends?

You do realize The Borowitz Report is a humor column, right? Republicans aren't actually urging President Obama to resign because someone lip synced.

I didn't think it was serious.


I laughed Tim, and I really like Rand Paul. :)

I'm sorry--I was replying to Elliot, not the initial blog posting, but I think I failed to click on the "reply" box under his comment.

To be more honest, I thought the Republicans were being funny. I didn't/ realize it was Borowitz' joke. Thanks for the correction.


Sounds like something you might find in The Onion.

It sounded like such a Republican thing to do, that I didn't catch it was a joke. Thanks for clearing it up; looks like the joke's on me this time. :-)
