The Republican Party believes it is a good idea to remind Americans it is unable to govern the country in an election year, and vows to refuse to confirm whoever President Obama nominates to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

WASHINGTON (The Nil Admirari) - This morning, the Republican Party confirmed it thought it was a good idea to remind Americans of its complete inability to govern in an election year. The GOP announced it had determined the best way to do this was to block whoever President Obama decided to nominate to the Supreme Court, which would complement the party's efforts to insult the voters it needed to win the upcoming presidential election.

"A crushing majority of American voters will soon have no doubt Republicans are unable to govern when Senate Republicans refuse to confirm any nominee President Obama selects to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court," declared Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who had just left a GOP strategy meeting.


McConnell continued, "I am extremely confident Senate Republicans are on track to help the GOP lose its third presidential election in a row, and maybe even a house of Congress if we play our cards just right."

"Blocking the confirmation of President Obama's Supreme Court nominee will complement the daily insults of women and minority groups made by our presidential candidates," explained McConnell.


An unidentified member of the press asked Senator McConnell if the GOP had any other strategies to show Americans it could not effectively govern the country.

"We are really hoping to find a way to not pay the government's bills so the nation's credit rating can be downgraded again," replied McConnell.
