New GOP-generated national motto

By November 1, 2010

EDITOR:

The GOP is positively giddy over its chances of taking back the House on Nov. 2. They’re already measuring the drapes for their new offices and drafting bills to roll back all manners of laws passed by the Obama administration.

No one has paid much attention to the first bill the GOP leadership intends to introduce,  namely a change of our national motto from “E Pluribus Unum.” John Boehner, the presumptive majority leader, has made it clear that this Latin dictum that few people understand is “un-American” and must go.  In a recent press release,  Boehner announced that the GOP caucus had decided on a new national motto:  “Dumb and Dumber.” It’s in English, short and easy to understand, and reflects more accurately the trend of politics in this country.
