    12 GOP senators switch to communism after Obama buys them dinner


    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama – in an attempt to ease tensions with Senate Republicans – bought a dozen GOP senators dinner last night, in what all have said was a pleasant evening. The dinner was held at the Jefferson Hotel, with Obama picking up the tab out of his own pocket.

    The 12 senators – John McCain, Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, Kelly Ayotte, Dan Coats, Richard Burr, Mike Johanns, Pat Toomey, Ron Johnson, John Hoeven, Lindsey Graham and Saxby Chambliss – were all so moved by the President’s largess, that all switched their party affiliation to communist immediately following the dinner.

    “If this is communism, it’s delicious!” said Johnson, who dined one shrimp risotto. “The people United cannot be divided! And neither will a check when Barack is around.”

    Following the dinner, all 12 senators said they would back any plan the President had on any issue, and will work to convince their GOP colleagues that “communism is where it’s at,” as McCain said.

    “The President today showed his true stripes – striped bass that is!” said Coburn, wearing a Che Guevarra T-shirt. “Seriously though, President Obama is a great man and I’ll do anything for him now. Anything. Name it.”

    While some of the 12 senators stated they wished now Obama would be more liberal and buy them dessert, the dinner was a major victory for the President. The dinner was also a victory for American political pundits, who have long stated that if Obama was only nicer to Republicans, then everything would be cool.

    So again it's the money that did it.  It's always the money. And fancy digs.  That helps, too. I guess Rand Paul was too busy jabbering last night, but wait until he hears they dined without him. 

    Very funny, and love the title!  But shouldn't 12 be spelled out at the beginning of a sentence?  (I'm still on my grammar, spelling, punctuation kick.  Don't mind me. . .)

    I haven't been in an American newsroom in about 8 years. Cut me some slack, I'm rusty ;)

    Coburn in a Che Guevarra TShirt... LOLOL.. I'd pay good money to see that one!

    And the reason they didn't get dessert is because the President is just watching out for their health, like every socialist/communist should!

    You only list 11. I'll look it up someplace and add #12

    You left out Graham.


    I found a photo of the dinner.
