WASHINGTON - (PTSD News) - It was the "no" heard around the world. On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, an African American woman refused to follow the order of bus driver James Blake to give up her seat to a white man and move to the back of the bus. Now, over half a century later, California Republican Darrell Issa has pledged that when he takes over the leadership of the powerful House Oversight and Reform Committee in January, he will appoint a special prosecutor to perform a complete investigation of Rosa Parks.

"The fact that America's economy had gone to the back of the bus is no accident," Issa said, "I beleive this idea of a free ride that has crippled the country started with Rosa Parks and I mean to get to the bottom of it." "We think she may not have really been born in the United States, but in Africa as it seems her Alabama birth certificate is a phony," said Michele Bachmann (R- Minn). "and she must be exposed for starting the death panels where she forced white people to the back of the bus where they might easily die from the smell of the sweat and fumes that white people were not used to."

"Parks was a known Communist," said Glenn Beck on his Fox Television show, "the letter 'R' in her name is the same 'R' used in the word Russia and Rosa is a code word for red which is a code word for a Marxist fellow traveller." Beck said he welcomes the investigation and wants to make sure the purse Parks brought on the bus that day is searched as "I am certain as the fact tax cuts to the rich will jump start the economy that she was carrying a hammer and sickle."

"We think she was palling around with Negro Muslims and had an anti-American preacher," Sarah Palin said. "and I heard that she could see Communist Cuba from her house." Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that it was time to stop all of the political correctness about Parks and to give equal time to ther person who actually upheld the law and traditional Southern values, bus driver James Blake. "I am confident the investigaton will take away the liberal media's unfair depection of Mr. Blake and place the blame of the upheaval where it belongs on that socialist, community organizer, Rosa Parks." McConnell said the investigation is needed because the public needs to know that to this day, Parks has never been able to prove that as a seamstress she was not sewing a giant flag of the Soviet Union."

Issa said he expects his investigation will show that far from being lauded for refusing to go to the back of the bus, Rosa Park really deserved to be thrown under the bus. President Obama said he welcomed the opportunity to see the other side of the Birmingham bus crises, saying he wants to work in a more bipartisan manner with the Republicans and perhaps Rosa Parks made a mistake for not giving up her seat, but as a compromise maybe she shouldn't have had to go all the way to the back, but taken a seat in the middle of the bus.
