In a surprising political turn, a Presidential Exploratory Committee will itself be forming an exploratory committee to gauge a possible run for the Republican Presidential nomination. "I'm sick and tired of doing all the exploratory work for jerks who may or may not actually run for President," said the Presidential Exploratory Committee. "I want in on the action. And who knows more about exploratory committees than I do?"
In a gesture of solidarity, exploratory committees for Republicans Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Herman Cain have defected to the Presidential Exploratory Committee's team to form a Super Exploratory Committee to more thoroughly explore the Presidential Exploratory Committee's chances for exploring a Presidential run. "Let's see them try to explore a Presidential bid without us," said the former Gingrich Exploratory Committee. "Not so easy, is it, huh? Huh? Tremble before our explorative might!"
The Presidential Exploratory Committee's Super Exploratory Committee has already visited Iowa and New Hampshire, where it is appealing to voters who are exploring new options for Presidential candidates. Representatives for Bachmann, Gingrich, and Cain had no comment, although Pawlenty did note he will be exploring the possibility of an exploratory committee to form another exploratory committee. Said the Presidential Exploratory Committee, "Good luck exploring that."
