WASHINGTON – Democrat Kamala Harris was sworn in today as the new Vice-President of the FSA (Fractured States of America). However, her swearing in was marred by an embarrassing moment when Harris assumed her usual position to take the VP oath.
Kamala got down on her knees and raised her right hand. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor administered the oath of office. But before she began, Sotomayor whispered, “Honey, you don’t have to do that anymore. You’re practically president now.”
A slightly embarrassed Harris, helped to her feet by her husband, muttered, “Sorry, just a reflex. I’ve done that before every promotion I’ve ever gotten since starting my career in politics. Old habits die hard, you know?”
After that slight hiccup, the ceremony went on without further incident. A few observers present at the swearing in said they thought Harris was kneeling to pray before taking the VP oath.
Asked about that later, Kamala cackled and said, “Yeah, right! I wouldn’t even know how to do it. That’s funny that some people thought that.”
