Bond’s new title: President Alfalfa, as he takes helm of secretive DC group
U.S. Sen. Christopher “Kit” Bond, R-Mo., was sworn in Saturday night as the new president of the Washington-based Alfalfa Club, which Politico describes as “one of the capital’s most secretive and prestigious organizations.”
It’s so prestigious that President Barack Obama was on hand for the closed-door 96th anniversary dinner, and gave one of several humorous addresses. According to Politico’s sources, Obama’s best lines included this explanation of the First Family’s delay in getting a dog: “The labradoodle we picked has some problems with back taxes…”
So, Kit Bond is Alfalfa. Does this mean that Obama is Stymie? My money is on Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) for Buckwheat.
