Washington, DC—No Defense Secretary nomination has ever been filibustered in the history of our nation, yet today that seems a very real possibility for nominee Chuck Hagel. The former Republican Senator has disgusted both sides of the aisle with his subversive views on Israel and gays…and especially gay Israelis.
Hagel told the Discord today, “I really need this job. I’m old and it’s hard to get a job at my age. I don’t want to have to choose between my food and my medication, not when I could be killing and torturing people all over the world.”
Hagel offended the gay community with one flamingly insensitive statement back in 1873.
“I just don’t want my fabulous ass drone-striked,” said the Discord’s Chief LGBTQ Correspondent, Dave Atsals. “If I’m on anybody’s watch list, I want it to be because of my ability to accessorize.”
Meanwhile, Hagel has lost Republican support for comments he made about the “Jewish lobby” and for his failure to recognize the genius that was the Iraq War.
After his nomination grew more highly contested by right and left, Chuck Hagel discussed the decision with his friends and family and decided to….well, it’s in the title. “I originally hoped to commit this act while handing over sensitive Benghazi documents, but my wife thought that would have been over the top,” said Hagel.
Mick Zano had this to say, “Having watched the confirmation hearing, the fact Hagel had to answer a series of questions that have no rational connection to our nation’s defense was great fun! But, what’s going to happen when the last intelligent Republican is chased out of their tent? Oh, wait…never mind.”
