Voodoo Health Care

With a crucial vote in the senate coming this evening on Voodoo-health-care, sorry got carry away, Obama-care; thought I would repost an oldie relating to this story.

Sarcoramphus Papa
King Vulture
aka "African Yeswecan Bird"

Polemaetus Bellicosus 
Martial Eagle
aka "Bird of Truth"
From deep in the heart of the jungle, near the slopes of Kilimanjaro came the cry of the African Yeswecan bird---freemed, freemed, freemed and the well tanned Witch Doctor of the illusive Libocrat tribe picked up the ringing calls of the Yeswecan bird as the great man strolled past the village elders who were awed by his mere presence and majesty. He had a almost god-like quality and a proud gate in his walk. The elders gathered round him waiting for his thunderous, all knowing words. And as he looked into the tiny pool in the village center he begin to speak, occasionally looking up at the mesmerized crowd who had gathered for his great words of wisdom. Then the words flowed from the magic pool to the mouth of the great Witch Doctor. The words were clear, clear as the sparkling pool from which they came. And all ears were in tune to the sounds of the great one as he echoed the crys of the Yeswecan bird---freemed, freemed, freemed. When nearing the end of his flowing words a mighty Polemaetus Bellicosus (the great bird of truth), was seen circling overhead and the crys of the great bird were heard by the elders---whowillpay, whowillpay, whowillpay. The elders fell silent!!

I say we ring the Yeswecan bird's neck and have it for dinner!

Ron Russell said...

Sounds like a good idea Stogie, a special dish would be in order "stewed gladiolus bugs with buzzard gravey"!

Nicely done, Ron.

Let's hope the elders (scumbags that they are) continue to hear the words of the great bird of truth. Otherwise, we're screwed.

BTW...Obugger's talking about doing this backdoor if he doesn't get his Obamacare bill per se, on an appropriations bill (which we procedurally can't filibuster). Stay tuned on that front.

Dr. Dave said...

Sorry for the multiple comments. I had to go dig this up: Here's where I heard about backdoor health care.

What was that old song about "Mississippi Squirrel" by Ray Stevens? Somehow I thought of that... Must be late

Funny stuff. But I am afraid that the Yeswecan bird with his flowery voice will be able to convince the elders to hunt down and kill the bird of truth.
