“We was robbed!” Duck assured followers in a closed-circuit Webcast this morning from the Palm Springs estate of his lifelong friend, Elmer Fudd. “We fought a good fight and our own polls showed we had it in the bag until fate stepped in and made all my votes disappear like the military ballots in Florida in 2000.”
Webcast viewers opined as Duck looked tired and agreed that his speech was even more slurred than usual, sparking speculation, completely unfounded according to Campaign Manager George Jungle, that he was in a drunken stupor.
Duck lamented the timing of his run for Mayor.
“As a society, we have come a long way in the past 100 years in terms of our respect for and treatment of People of Colour. Some of my best friends are people. But it appears the time is not yet right for a Black Duck to run for municipal office.”
Duck thanked his campaign workers and supporters warmly and assured them he is not bowing out of public life just yet.
“I’ll still be hanging around City Hall as usual. Stop by anytime and say hello at my unofficial office in the Atrium, by the ceremonial pool.”
