State of the Union: Parties sit together in historic address; Kerry and McCain a little too comfortable
History was made last night as parties from America’s two biggest political parties – Republicans and Democrats – sat together, in unison, during Barak Obama’s State of the Union address.
Some of the congressmen and women found that they actually had much in common, such as hobbies, musical tastes, and some even found they agreed on key political issues.
Things were going great.
But talk from Capitol Hill this morning is that things got a bit tense last night between two leading senators.
“At first it was funny to see John Kerry and John McCain getting along so well. Talking about their favorite microbrew beers, chatting about funny things their wives do. Then, something just started getting a little weird,” said Rep. Joe Flago (CA).
“At first they started like horsing around a little, like kids. It was actually getting really distracting. They kept poking each other and then one would hit the other real hard, and they’d say “owie” with this really pouty face. And then they leaned their heads in together really close and just kept mumbling to each other in ever more serious and hushed tones. It’s giving me the chills just thinking about it.
“Things got really tense between them — sexually tense…if you catch my meaning.”
