Bush Appoints Horse to Cabinet Post


WASHINGTON DC - US President George W Bush, in a bold move, has nominated Incitatus, a horse, to replace departing Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman. This is the first time an Equine American has ever been recommended for such a high-ranking cabinet position.
The President praised Incitatus as "an inspiration to critters all across this great nation. The horse holds an honored role in American history, and it is long past due that one of their kind should be given a place at the table, overseeing our agricultural policy".

Press Secretary Scott McClellan predicted rapid Senate confirmation of Incitatus, whom he cited as eminently qualified for the job. "The President honors loyalty above all else in his cabinet officials, and something that urban elites may not appreciate, but which is well known in the heartlands, is that you can trust a good horse to bring you home, even when you're dead drunk. If the President goes right to the source and asks the horse, hell give the answer that he'd endorse. Hes always on a steady course." more...

Republican leaders were quick to laud the President's choice. "This is a brilliant move, and is sure to shore up the President's credibility in rural America", said one high ranking Republican official. "It's positively Reaganesque".

Senate Democrats are anxious to avoid the appearance of being obstructionists, and indicated that they are inclined to approve the nomination, working with the president in a spirit of bi-partisanship. "Given the President's unprecedented re-election mandate, we feel that our job is to just facilitate his appointments", said a high ranking Senate Democrat.

1. Overqualified for his cabinet

However, just the rear part might be an appropriate fit.

4. Bush, in reality, is terrified of horses.

5. Horses have a great social heirarchy in their herds.
Perhaps this is the answer! We just replace all of the cabinet with horses. But only one mare or they will all fight to be POTUS (It is a myth that stallions lead the herds...mares rule).
