Shinseki Resignation Delayed Due to Loss of Paperwork

WASHINGTON – Eric Shinseki, secretary of the Veterans Affairs Department, announced his resignation today after a meeting with President Barack Obama, but his request has been delayed as all required paperwork has been misplaced.

“This is a total surprise to me,” said Shinseki.  “I am also very disappointed with how the resignation process is conducted.  The people responsible should be held accountable for their blatant negligence.”

Shinseki discovered the loss of paperwork after waiting approximately six hours in line, but sources say that office records indicate his wait was under thirty minutes.

“I would not want to live in a world where this appalling behavior exists.  Treating hard-working people like this who support America, and in some ways protect it, well, that is an abomination.”

Former Vice President Dick Cheney weighed in on the embarassment. “This is not something that would have happened under Bush’s term as president, because we would never have let anyone apply for help in the first place,” said Cheney.
