Playing with the "Chief"

A couple week ago I'm playing in a friendly game at the local Elks club when a fellow that calls himself "Chief" starts telling us about a gathering of the American Indian Nation in his home state of New York. A Pow Wow as he called it. The keynote speaker being none other than Sen. Hillary Clinton. He went on to tell us how she spoke for almost an hour on her future plans for helping Native American's and boasted about how she had never opposed any legislation designed to help her "red sisters and brothers"

At the conclusion of her speech, the Chief said he and the other tribe leaders presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with her new Indian spirit name - Walking Eagle.

With my curiosity getting to me, I asked, Chief , how did you come to select the spirit name given to the Senator. He proceeded to explain that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of sh-t it can no longer fly.
