Washington, DC. After passing their resolution reaffirming "In God We Trust" as the nation's motto, congressional Republicans today passed yet another confirming the colors of the United States flag.
"It is red, white and blue," declared Rep, Tom Price (R-GA), "not cerise, ultramarine and ivory. I think all real Americans can now rest easier knowing that this has been firmly established. Our forefathers fought and died for these colors."
Asked how this related to the stated goal of job creation, Rep. Price said that job creation was the number one focus of the GOP and that President Obama was ruining job growth by being black and a Democrat.
"The American people know we are laser-focused on job creation, and we will get right back to that after we pass a resolution declaring apple pie the nation's signature dessert."
Other resolutions waiting for a vote are the Confirming Baseball Is America's Pastime and Motherhood, an American Ideal.
