House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi reaffirms the
Democratic Partyâ€™s promise to remain marginalized
The Onion reports:
WASHINGTON, DCâ€”In a press conference on the steps of the Capitol Monday, Congressional Democrats announced that, despite the scandals plaguing the Republican Party and widespread calls for change in Washington, their party will remain true to its hopeless direction.
“We are entirely capable of bungling this opportunity to regain control of the House and Senate and the trust of the American people,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said to scattered applause. “It will take some doing, but we’re in this for the long and pointless haul.”
“We can lose this,” Reid added. “All it takes is a little lack of backbone.”
Despite plummeting poll numbers for the G.O.P nationwide and an upcoming election in which all House seats and 33 Senate seats are up for contention, Democrats pledged to maintain their party’s sheepish resignation.
“In times like these, when the American public is palpably dismayed with the political status quo, it is crucial that Democrats remain unfocused and defer to the larger, smarter, and better-equipped Republican machine,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said. “If we play our cards right, we will be intimidated to the point of total paralysis.”
