WASHINGTON (Rooters agency) – In a unanimous vote, the US Senate today supported a Constitutional amendment to abolish itself.
The overwhelming vote (1-0 under the body’s arcane rules as to what can be voted on and by whom) was on a bill introduced by Majority Leader Mulch Gooddoggy. He said that his motion followed logically from his earlier unanimous (1-0) vote that the Senate would not consider any bill or resolution that was opposed by the President.
The Minority Leader, Senator Chuck Scammer, had responded to that remark by saying Gooddoggy’s position “raises the obvious question of why we would need to have a Senate at all.”
“In a spirit of bipartisanship,” Gooddoggy replied, “I agree with my esteemed colleague’s observation,” and less than 24 hours later, he introduced his proposed amendment.
While it is believed that a large majority of the House of Representatives will support the amendment, it is not clear whether it could be ratified in time by three-fourths of the states in order to have it affect current politics.
However, unreliable sources in the White House report that President Ronald Dump has inquired about the possibility of ratifying Constitutional amendments by a Declaration of Emergency Executive Decree.
In possibly related news, Senator Gooddoggy has declined to comment on reports that the President has promised to create a Cabinet position called Secretary of the Senate.
