Terminal Virus Spreads Through Senate
By: Sher Zieve
A new virus is spreading throughout the US Senate and it appears that an increasing number of our lawmakers have been infected. The last notable germ to contaminate the Senate was this yearâ€™s Pro-Illegal-Alien bug that will continue to allow illegal immigrants to enter the US and destroy any continued hope for US sovereignty. However, this new highly-contagious and virulent disease may prove to be terminalâ€”for both the United States of America and its people.
Some of the observable symptoms of this latest malady include:
-US Senators traveling to the Middle East, while rushing to formulate their ownâ€”individualâ€”US foreign policies
-US Senators demanding that President Bush meet with Syrian President Bashar Assad to â€œhelpâ€ with Lebanon and Iraqâ€”even though Assad has been part and parcel to terrorist activities in the region
-US Senators demands that the Bush Administration open up â€œtalksâ€ with Iran regarding â€œassistanceâ€ in the â€˜problems in the Middle Eastâ€™â€”despite the fact that Iranâ€™s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been the largest supplier of terrorists in Iraq, has called for Israel to be â€œwiped off the mapâ€ and is a weaponsâ€™ supplier to both Palestinian Hamas and Hezbollah in Lebanon
-Bent over US Senators looking under rocks, in order to find the elusive and mythical â€œappeasement Unicornâ€â€”despite the fact that terrorists only respond positively to strength
-Senators heard almost incoherently mumbling, while gnashing their teeth: â€œWe have to give up. We have to surrenderâ€¦
To date, some of the more vocal infected senators include Senators Christopher Dodd (D-CN), Ben Nelson (D-FL), Dick Durbin (D-IL) andâ€”of courseâ€”John Kerry (D-MA). Joining the Democrats is Republican-in-name-only (AKA â€œRINOâ€) Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA), who plans a trip to Syria to meet with thug-in-charge Assad. Specter and the others have made the decision that they will now decide how to affect US policy, when dealing with terrorists and their leaders. In actually meeting with those leaders, the senators not only provide credibility to those â€œleadersâ€ who are actually causing said terrorism but, place the US in a visible-to-the-world weakened state. This illness, initially dubbed the Stupidity-that-flies-in-the-face-of-all-common-sense-and-reasonâ€ or SCAR) virusâ€”is also said to be spreading to other senators; those who want to be President of the United States but, â€œcanâ€™t get elected even in their widest dreamsâ€. Thus far, the disease has only affected US senators. But, indications are that is may be spreading into the House of Representatives. Speaker-to-be Pelosi (D-CA) has indicated that she too thinks talking with terrorist nations Iran and Syria could be â€œhelpfulâ€.
Showing that the SCAR virus has moved into areas of the brain, the Middle Eastern-bound senators are making additional seemingly bizarre statements. John Kerry recently said: â€œI’m going to push them [the Syrians] on a number of different issues. I’m curious about what they might or might not be willing to do as we go forward here.â€ What â€œthey might or might not be willing to doâ€, Senator? With its two recent assassinations of Lebanese leaders and Syriaâ€™s support of terrorist Hezbollah, I would have thought that question had already been answeredâ€”even for the dullest individuals amongst us. And how, pray tell, do you plan to â€œpush themâ€? Are you going to threaten the use of your infamous spit-balls? Note: This individual could actually have become POTUS.
Joining Kerry on his â€œIâ€™ll-fix-everything-in-the-Middle-East whirlwind tourâ€ is Christopher Dodd. In Lebanon, the two met with Hezbollah ally and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri. The two men then took time for a photo-op with leader of the Progressive Socialist Party of Lebanonâ€™s Walid Jumblattâ€”who, until recently, was a Hezbollah supporter. No matter to the senators. Besides, Kerry has met with and supported enemies of the US in the past and has said: â€œI’m an internationalist. I’d like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations.â€ Hard as it may be to believe, this man actually is a US senator.
Commenting on the Iraq Study Group report (AKA â€œThe Iraq Surrender Group Reportâ€), Sen. Durbin said nonsensically: â€œI believe the clearest way to make this report a reality is to begin redeployment [translation: â€œcut and runâ€] of our troops out of Iraq in January 2007.â€ Senator Ben Nelson was, apparently, the first to contract the SCAR virus (ground zero) and the first to have a dialogue with Assad. However, the disease may not be as potent in Nelson, as he actually said: â€œI don’t trust him [Assad] at all.â€ Commenting on these peripatetic patriarchs, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow commented: â€œThe point is that even lending a further specter of legitimacy to that government undermines the cause of democracy in the region.â€ Thankfully, at least Tony hasnâ€™t as yet contracted the disease.
The problems inherent in these trips for conversations with our enemies, as well as attempts to bolster the senatorsâ€™ self-importance, is that it places the USA in a perceived diluted position while assuming a bent and submissive posture. But, as has for too long been the case, â€œourâ€ senators donâ€™t seem to care. These are the ones you elected, folks. And, these are the ones who may just destroy us. Considering the results of the 2006 mid-term elections, perhaps the SCAR virus has already spread to the USâ€™ general population. For the survival of the country, we can only hope and pray a cure is found. And, I would suggest, it had best be soon.
