Republicans To Stage HMS Pinafore

Posted by a4g @ 4/14/2005 04:49:00 PM

Republican Senate Leader Bill Frist today announced a change of plans for the Republican members of the Senate. Instead of voting to break the judicial appointment filibuster, the Republican Senators will be spending most of their time until the 2006 election rehearsing for a performance of HMS Pinafore.

This will leave the Senate in the control of the Democrats, who up until now have been in effective, if not official, control.

Frist, who will be portraying Joseph Porter K.C.B., First Lord of the Admiralty, feels that this softer approach to working through the crisis will cause less hurt feelings and really show empathy towards the Democrats, whose party has been steadily losing power over the last 25 years, due to the fact that not enough Americans like their ideas or want them anywhere near positions of power to vote for them.

"When I was a lad, I served a term as office boy in an attorney's firm," was Frist's comment for the record, quoting from the delightful light opera.

Senator John McCain, who will be portraying the "baby-farming" nursemaid Little Buttercup, introduced a motion as the Republicans filed out of the Senate chambers which would allow the Democrats to run the Senate without the necessary quorum. The motion passed unanimously.

I saw a great revival of Pinafore some years back, but the thought of McCain as Buttercup has got me really excited. Where can I buy tickets?
