Satire by John W. Lillpop
For nearly two weeks now, American media have attempted to deify Michael Jackson with 24/7 coverage of this very disturbed man's life and death.
When is enough enough? How about 13 days ago?
Not according to moonbats like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
If Congresswoman Lee gets her way, the US Congress will stop work on the collapsing US economy, massive deficits, soaring unemployment and gas prices, and Obama's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan long enough to pass a resolution honoring the deceased pervert, AKA, Michael Jackson.
As reported, in part, at CSN:
"Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee may have trouble keeping the promise she made at Michael Jackson's public memorial for a House resolution that "forever" honors the late pop star.
"Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, took the stage Tuesday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and hoisted a framed copy of the resolution, embossed with a gold seal. The measure will be debated on the House floor, she said.
"For that framed, embossed resolution to be completely legit, it must first get past some opposition.
"Her legislation, House Resolution 600, lists several charitable acts by Michael Jackson over his long career and proclaims him as an American legend, musical icon and world humanitarian. He is, Jackson Lee said, "someone who will be honored forever and forever and forever and forever and forever."
"In the House, non-controversial resolutions honoring a person who has died or carried out a noteworthy accomplishment normally move quickly from committee to the House floor and then pass on a voice vote. The Michael Jackson resolution, introduced June 26, is awaiting action in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, of which Jackson Lee is a member and King is not."
I have an even better idea, Congresswoman: Let's make July 7 a national holiday in honor of Michael Jackson in order to assure that the King of Pill Pop will be remembered forever.
Of course, adding another expensive federal holiday will be a hard sell during the national depression. Still, the issue must be addressed.
My solution: Drop Martin Luther King day as a holiday and replace it with Emaciated Pedophile Day.
How does that sound Congresswoman?
