Republicans Fight Over Location Of Strategy Meeting

Republicans Fight Over Location Of Strategy Meeting
Cheney and his Republican cronies scope out possible locations for their strategy meeting.

WASHINGTON (CAP) - High-profile Republicans, hoping to restore relevance to their floundering party, have laid out plans for a strategic summit but can't agree on a place to hold it, according to sources close to the group.

The conflict is primarily between recently feuding Republican luminaries Gen. Colin Powell and former Vice President Dick Cheney, with Powell wanting to meet "somewhere austere, to reflect the difficult times facing many Americans," and Cheney saying that "if he expects me to drag my keister into a goddamn Holiday Inn Express, he's even more of a milksop than I thought he was."

Cheney had apparently been lobbying to hold the meeting in the secret vice presidential bunker, which as a former vice president he retains lifetime access to. But other members of the group reminded him that current VP Joe Biden recently let the bunker's location slip while speaking at the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington.

"Someday I'm going to shoot that guy in the face," responded Cheney, adding, after an awkward two-minute silent pause, "Umm ... joke."

Republican strategist Karl Rove and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, meanwhile, each wants to hold the meeting in his own D.C. office. "Rove's office is all the way across town," noted Gingrich. "Why should I have to be the one to sit in traffic?"

"When he's run the free world for eight years, we can meet in his office," responded Rove. "Um - and when I say 'run the free world' I mean advise the guy who's run the free world. Sorry, Mr. Cheney."

Meanwhile, the session's slated keynote speaker, radio personality Rush Limbaugh, has insisted that wherever it's held, it be within half a block from a 24-hour pharmacy. Republican unrest over this issue has elicited a pointed response from the Democratic Party.

"I think the American people should be asking themselves, what does the inability of the Republicans to come together on this say about them as a party?" said Democratic National Committee Chairman Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia. "And the answer is, it says that they're a bunch of weenies."

Then he chuckled to himself for a full minute before saying, "Sorry, it feels like I've been waiting forever to be able to say that."

For his part, Powell says the last thing the party needs if it hopes to get back on its feet is infighting over trivial issues. Told of this, Cheney responded, "Oh, is he still a Republican? I thought he had converted to the party of magical faerie wusses."

Limbaugh echoed Cheney's sentiment, saying, "I don't think we really need Gen. Powell for this meeting. Maybe that night he can put a bone through his nose and dance around a bonfire with his friend President Obama instead."

When asked if he thought that comment could be classified as racist, he said, "I wasn't referring to the fact that they were black. It's just like the mainstream media to try to spin it that way.

"That said, they are a couple of minstrelly Negroes, aren't they?" Limbaugh added.

As to what the Republicans plan to discuss should they ever agree on a location for the summit, Cheney has hinted at a plan involving the recently developed super-laser that can burn as hot as the sun and which can incinerate a man in seconds.

"I say we start with Arlen Specter," said Cheney.

    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." «»
