Senate Changes Name to House of Lords

(An imaginary Onion article)

Washington, DC. Today Senate leaders Reid and McConnell announced that they are changing the name of the US Senate to the House of Lords. "We feel this change reflects the power of the body and the position of its members." When asked about the Constitution, the Senate leaders replied, "The constitution is subordinate to the needs of the nobility."

In other news, President Jeb Bush announced he is changing his title to King. The House of Representatives is appealing to the states for military aid.

Krawk!

I think it would be a good idea to change the Senate into a House of Lords: a comfortable retirement home for the formerly powerful, with no power or authority, other than moral, over the government.

We could put former Presidents and Vice Presidents in it, and honored Generals. It would beat electing them President....
