Democrats to Place Cake in Balloon, Hope Rush Limbaugh Floats Away
on 10/16/2009 (8)
D.C., Washington - The recent hoopla around the "Balloon Boy" has given rise to a new plan by top Washington Democrats to rid themselves of one of the biggest thorns in their side, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.
Knowing Limbaugh is a self-professed lover of all things baked, and cake in particular, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is on his way right now to the residence of Rush with a freshly baked cake and all the supplies needed to construct a helium balloon capable of carrying Limbaugh thousands of feet into the air.
"The plan is to construct the balloon outside of Rush's home in plain site," said an anonymous Democratic source who wishes to remain nameless for fear that he too might be tricked into a balloon. "When he steps into the balloon and begins to devour the cake, Reid will release the balloon and Rush will float off into the sky."
Democrats admit the plan is not foolproof though and haven't worked out all the details.
"We're really not sure where he'll end up, though we're hopeful the balloon will land in a volcano," said the Democratic source. "Not only would that rid us of Rush forever but it would also appease a most vengeful volcano God."
President Barrack Obama, whom Limbaugh has been very critical of in recent years, denied any knowledge of the plan but admitted that he would not be opposed to Limbaugh floating away in a balloon or landing in a volcano.
