Free Lunch

Click Cartoon for Larger Size
Many people are feeling like they've been "force fed" after the president's sweep of five Sunday news shows to promote his increasingly unpopular healthcare plan.

Interestingly, FOX News was the only network that Obama refused to appear on, despite their requests that he do so...and despite the fact that they have the highest news ratings. This would seem to indicate that the president either:

A) doesn't want to answer actual questions about healthcare
B) doesn't plan for conservatives to get healthcare in the future, or
C) could pass a visual inspection to qualify as a runner for the South African women's track team.

I just gotta say...often (of course) I chuckle at the comic...but then just laugh out loud at the comments you put afterwards!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a serious note...has this country figured out yet that if the President has to hog up tv time to try to push through a bill...that there's a big problem? Geez the next thing you know, he'll be singing "Obamacare" on American Idol. (Sorry...I'm not trying to be obvious about my pet peeves but its not working too well, is it? haha)

Suzy, I love the image of the president singing "Obamacare" on American Idol. He might also do some impressive footwork on "Dancing with the Truth."

This is an instant classic sir. Coffee came out of my nose, which wasn't pleasant, but it was worth it. Thanks for the laugh at the end of a difficult day.

Matt, sorry to hear that you had a difficult day, but glad that Hope n' Change could help a little. By the way, snorting a quick line or two of Coffeemate should help soothe your nostrils!
