Karzai Declared Winner of Next Month's Runoff

KABUL (The Borowitz Report) - In a stunning victory, Afghan president Hamid Karzai today was declared the winner of the runoff election scheduled to take place November 7.

A jubilant Mr. Karzai thanked his supporters, saying, "By voting for me so convincingly in an election that has yet to happen, the Afghan people have cast a vote for the future."

Elsewhere, a neighbor of the Octomom called the police after noticing eight giant balloons in her back yard. More here.
