D.C. - Washington D.C. - Senator Harlan Burdock from Idaho openly
questioned the $87 billion that the Bush administration requested
for ongoing operations in Iraq during Senate Appropriation Committee
hearings, and wondered if that money would be better spent on marijuana.
"Secretary Rumsfeld where is the mandate from the American people for sending
this money to Iraq? I talked to my constituency and they said a giant blunt for
everybody in town would be a much better idea," said the self-proclaimed "Party
"Do you know how much weed that could buy Mr. Secretary?" questioned
Rumsfeld shrugged his shoulders and replied, "I'm sorry Senator
I don't know that question, but from my experience with the CIA
I do believe it could buy about three or four tons of crack cocaine."
During Senator Byrd's questioning Burdock kept interrupting to
ask when lunch break would be, because he "needed to take
a trip to Munchieland."
After the hearings Burdock introduced legislation that would support
sending money to support our troops in Iraq, but an equal amount
must be spent on dope for people here at home.
"With the economy struggling, and our troops being bombed
every day, I don't think it's too much to ask that our people on
the home front get a little something to make them happy," said
a giggling Burdock.
