Dems Demand Deadline For Sanjaya Withdrawal From Idol
Paula Abdul promises President Bush a little something-something if he promises to veto the Sanjaya Malakar bill.
Dems Demand Deadline For Sanjaya Withdrawal From Idol

WASHINGTON (CAP) - A defiant, Democratic-controlled Senate has approved legislation calling for the withdrawal of Sanjaya Malakar from American Idol within two weeks. President Bush has vowed to veto the bill when it reaches his desk.

"With passage of this bill, the Senate sends a clear message to the president that we must take American Idol in a new direction," said Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) shortly before the vote. "Setting a goal for getting Sanjaya off of Idol is not cutting and running. How much more do we need to take of him?"

While both sides have spoken positively about a need for compromise, Bush was emphatic about vetoing the legislation, according to participants at an "Idol Results Party" in the White House East Room with the GOP rank and file.

"I must and I will deny any bill that lays out a timeline for the removal of that Angina kid. When it is his time to go, the American people will vote it so," said Bush. "Besides, I got this cool new Cross pen for vetoization that I'm just itching to use."

The 51-47 vote was largely along party lines, and like House passage of a separate, more sweeping challenge to the show's voting policies a week ago, fell far short of the two-thirds margin needed to overturn the president's threatened veto. Also at issue are a number of riders in the bill, including money earmarked to pay off Sanjaya so he won't tour with the Idol final ten later this summer.

"Two million for a substance abuse program for Paula Abdul?" said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. "Part of that show's allure is not knowing what that woman is going to slur next. Don't take that away from us."

Stressing that the "clock is ticking" for Simon Cowell's possible departure from the show, Democrats insinuated that the public would hold President Bush responsible if Sanjaya wins and the abrasive judge quits.

    After suggesting that learning a trade is a better career choice than an art history degree, President Obama has offered his apologies by delivering coffee and doughnuts to unemployed art history majors. "Chin up, my jobless friends," he said. "This country needs more baristas who can wax poetic about Rembrandt." «» The man whose job it is to hold the 'applause' sign to queue audience members during President Obama's speeches is demanding a pay raise. "My arms still hurt from the State of the Union," Fritz Gorman said. "And I swear Joe Biden just claps whenever he feels like it. Loser." «» Former first lady Hillary Clinton admitted to CAP News that she hasn't showered since 1996, a defensive mechanism she used to keep Bill away. "It was rough smelling that ripe for so long," she said. "But now that I'm 66, I use old lady perfume and that shit masks everything." «» Following his assertion that marijuana is no worse than alcohol, President Obama continued his comparison crusade by suggesting that eating gizzards is no worse than eating chitlins. "Cooked stomach or cooked intestine: what's the difference? They both taste like ass," he noted. "Black people need to do better than that." «» Researchers at MIT have finished calculating President Obama's approval rating, which they say can be obtained by use of the imaginary number i. "We all learned about the square root of negative one in school," said one mathematician. "But to find it applied in the real world is truly spectacular." «» Liz Cheney has announced that despite her carnal desires to continue pushing, she has decided to pull out. While most family members were tight-lipped over the announcement, sister Mary said she didn't think Liz "ever had it in her to begin with" and was likely faking the entire time. «» A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds President Obama's approval rating has soared to the highest of his presidency among deaf Americans following his speech at Nelson Mandela's memorial service. The sign language interpreter at the service was reportedly "signing gibberish" but clearly what he was signing resonated with deaf Americans. «» Following word that he's leaving the Republican Party, Sen. Ted Cruz has announced that he's also leaving the Hispanic race for an ethnicity to be named later. "Time to try my hand at a new race, or even start my own," Cruz said. "I wish Hispanics all the best, though." «» The White House denies rumors that President Obama is using the powers of the NSA to monitor daughter Malia's phone calls. "I am totally not picking up another line, covering the mouth piece, and listening when boys call her," Obama said. "I much prefer to eavesdrop through her bedroom door." «» President Obama was caught hitting on a pregnant woman during a speech in the White House Rose Garden yesterday when she swooned and fell lovingly into his arms. "Talking about Obamacare does have that effect on women," said an aide. "The whole thing had this weird Scandal vibe to it." «»
