Sarah Palin has pledged the support of the Republicans for the millions of protesters demanding the removal of President Mubarak Obama.
In a statement on YouTube she revealed that, in a break with her usual habits, she had watched the grown up news yesterday and was shocked but mighty pleased to hear of the unrest and rioting in the Middle East. Informing viewers that Washington D.C. is also in the East, she urged protesters to go the extra mile and take the trip there from Cairo in order to put maximum pressure on the President.
Mitch McConnell, Senate Republican leader, said that while he took issue with some of the fine detail of Ms Palin’s proposals, the party was right behind her. ‘Democracy is a fine thing and as American as soccer moms,’ he said, ‘but it has to be used in the right way. It is always appropriate as a weapon against Communist or Islamist rule, but careless use can unsettle stable dictatorships and upset established trading patterns. Like a semi automatic assault rifle, it can be your best friend but can potentially be harmful.’
He went on to say that democracy in the hands of Democrats was a democracy too far, and that direct action in support of regime change, big oil and low taxes was not only justifiable but God’s will. ‘I urge all decent Americans to join Sarah Palin’s campaign against Mubarak Obama,’ he said.
When President Obama pointed out the confusion over his name, opponents said this was a typical educated liberal attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of the people. When pressed, he said he would stand down but not until the next election in 2012, although he would be looking for a second term.
