GOP Sens Give Iran Heads Up About Democracy

Voters_at_the_voting_booths_in_1945 Washington, DC — Republican Senators today sent a letter to Iran, warning the Iranians about the changeable nature of American democracy.  The letter made the Iranians aware that any deal they reach with the White House about Iran’s nuclear program could easily be amended or nullified after this next election, or indeed, after any election from now until the sun flames out. “If Obama signs it, we’ll un-sign it,” the letter stated. “Or we might wait, just to mess with you, and then un-sign it in ten years. Because we can. Deal with it!”

“To be honest, I don’t know why anybody bothers to negotiate anything with us,” stated Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). “We’re only as reliable as our last election. We can’t wait to get a Republican back in the White House, so we can change everything from Obamacare to the drapes.”

Asked if it isn’t unsettling for other nations to see America’s foreign policy treated like a political football by Congress, McConnell replied, “Well, if the voters would continue to elect Republicans, maybe things would settle down. But sometimes, even if the GOP spends obscene amounts of money and does everything in its power to restrict voting rights, the democratic system breaks down and voters elect Democrats.”

In response, the Iranians stated that they have pretty much gotten the gist of how things work in the United States from the past 200-plus years of our history. “Democracy is such a crazy headache,” they said. “That’s why we pretty much don’t bother with it.”

“I feel ya, brother,” McConnell said, chuckling. “I feel ya.”
