[This probably isn't true, but it should be!]

Senator Hilary Clinton was invited to address a major gathering of
the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upper New York State. She
spoke for almost an hour on her future plans for increasing every
Native American's present standard of living, should she one day
become the first female President. She referred to her career as a
New York Senator, how she had signed "YES" for every Indian issue
that came to her desk for approval. Although the Senator was vague on
the details of her plan, she seemed most enthusiastic about her
future ideas for helping her "red sisters and brothers". At the
conclusion of her speech, the Tribes presented the Senator with a
plaque inscribed with her new Indian name -Walking Eagle. The proud
Senator then departed in her motorcade, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later inquired to the group of chiefs of how they
come to select the new name 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.
