Senator BARACK OBAMA was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upstate New York. HE spoke for almost an hour on HIS future plans for increasing every Native American's present standard of living, should HE one day become the President. HE referred to HIS career as a Senator, how he had signed 'YES' for every Indian issue that came to HIS desk for approval. Although the Senator was vague on the details of HIS plan, he seemed most enthusiastic about HIS future ideas for helping HIS 'red sisters and brothers'.
At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - Walking Eagle. Th e proud Senator then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds.
A news reporter later inquired to the group of chiefs of how they came to select the new name they had given to the Senator. They explained that 'Walking Eagle' is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.
