a thousand words

The natives are restless with the
President so he appoints Reverend Al King.

WASHINGTON D.C. - Al Sharpton finally has a political job. King Of The Blacks. It is not known if a President can appoint a monarch. The Constitution forbids a President from being king, but is silent on making one. Rahm Emanuel, the Chief of Staff said "ironically, it's a gray area."

The Congressional Black Caucus, Cornell West and other black leaders have been complaining about the President's lack of attention to the problems of black folk. The CBC went so far as to send the President a nasty letter of nonsupport which said ugly things about Obama's jump shot being weak.

Faced with the "black problem" again, President Obama sought help from a black man, apparently forgetting that he is black himself. Black leaders are angry that the President is spending his time saving the country and not them. A Time CNN pole shows that 86% of blacks still support Obama but 4% want to revoke his hood pass and 10% think he should watch Do The Right Thing again.

Many also question the selection of the controversial Sharpton who was once described as "the personification of chitlins." One D.C. insider quipped: "What, Madea wasn't available?"

Tavis Smiley who has been critical of Obama and has had a big run in with Sharpton was less than impressed. "I don't recognize his kingship," snarked Smiley. "The only thing he's the king of is fat and ugly." And what is he (Sharpton) doing at the white house day and night? Singing spirituals or cleaning up?"

King Sharpton takes in all in stride saying that he was going to represent Obama to the black leaders and "rule with wisdom in the long days ahead."

Sharpton also pointed out that he made a big sacrifice for his new position. He took the job, ruining BET's plan for an animated musical show based on Sharpton's hair called Perm and the Nappy Fives.

"And that shit was hilarious," said King Sharpton.
