It Also Looks Good on the Refrigerator!

Michelle Obama, working with museum curators, has recently selected new artworks to decorate the Whitehouse. The portrait shown above is by African-American artist William H. Johnson and will be displayed in the first family's private residence. The selected artworks favor both the abstract and primitive schools, from which no inferences whatsoever should be drawn. More telling, perhaps, is the selection of a painting which celebrates indecisiveness (shown below) which will presumably be displayed in the Oval Office.

Artist Ed Ruscha's painting "I Think I'll..." depicts the agony of indecision by adorning a fiery red/orange background with the phrases:
"I think I'll ...," "Wait a minute ... I ... I ...",
"On second, thought, maybe", "Maybe ... No ..."

Hope n' Change Alert!

Perhaps to make up for the president's embarrassing 4th place finish in the competition for the Olympic games, judges in Oslo have just awarded him the Nobel Peace Prize for...uh...hang on...he must have done something...oh yeah, for traveling around the globe saying that the United States is an arrogant, intolerant, environment-destroying, war mongering disgrace to the world community!

Of course, he also scored "Peace Prize" points for backing down from challenges from North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China, and for his continuing efforts to lose wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

The president says he'll be traveling to Oslo to receive the award, but that he's accepting it on behalf of "all Americans." No thanks, Mr president - this one is all yours.

Doesn't Add A Dime!

Democrats and the mainstream media were high-fiving over the CBO's report that massive increases in healthcare spending can be made "without adding to the deficit." What they aren't saying is that this will be accomplished by slashing many existing benefits for seniors, and raising hundreds of billions of dollars of new taxes...all of which will be passed on to the individual consumer.

Of course, the Baucus proposal isn't written in official legislative language, meaning that the CBO's guess at costs is only a guess...and that the actual healthcare bills proposed by Harry Reid and the Democrats will actually cost a lot more. But the mainstream media doesn't really want you to think about that. Or think at all, for that matter.

Homeland Insecurity

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio was so effective at finding and arresting illegal aliens that Homeland Security has stripped him and his officers of the authority to make such arrests. Oh sure, we're continually told by the democrats that 17 million illegal immigrants are overwhelming our healthcare system (and therefore, by Obama's reasoning, causing our economic collapse). But as Whoopi Napolitano says, "it's not like illegal immigration is illegal-illegal."

Which is why she's made it impossible for our laws to be enforced-enforced.

Obama Lama Ding Dong

Click Cartoon for Larger Size
No, no - we're kidding! Of course Obama is sucking up to the Chinese! Time and again, this president has turned his back on people fighting and dying for freedom, while cozying up to the world's worst dictators. For instance, he described the shooting of Iranian protestors as "robust political debate." And now, he's the first president in two decades to turn the peace-loving Dalai Lama away because it's easier, if less ethical, than discussing China's many human rights violations.

But hey, Mister president, in these days of Hope n' Change, what's a little genocide between friends?

The War of Necessity

Click Cartoon for Larger Size
The president called Afghanistan "the war of necessity" and described it as "fundamental to the defense of our people." Yet he's ignoring General McChrystal's plea for additional troops and, in the resulting bloodbath, giving the Taliban and terrorists hope for what would once have seemed unthinkable: a victory over the United States.

The longer the president postpones a decision, the more American soldiers die and the stronger the enemy forces get. But Obama has suggested that he wants to get healthcare "resolved" before devoting his time and energy to Afghanistan. So in record numbers, American troops are dying while the president plays political games. Unfortunately, as the world learned in Copenhagen, he's not as good at games as he thinks he is...

Will Perform Surgery For Food

Since all impartial studies show that Obamacare will neither improve medical care or reduce costs, the president is now claiming that his healthcare plan will curtail unemployment with a massive influx of new jobs. But since medical care workers aren't the ones currently out of work, doesn't that mean that the "new hires" will be bringing some odd skills - or lack of skills - to handling our medical records, giving injections, and setting X-ray machines to "scan" instead of "microwave?"

Then again, the president may intend to hire only people who have recently lost their jobs, but have a proven history of community involvement, personal care, and empathy for all kinds of problems. In other words, "Dr. Acorn will see you now..."

Mea Gulpa

After David Letterman's bizarre on-air admission of serial sexual escapades with female staffers, he won't really be able to joke about the indiscretions of others anymore. This means that his opening monologues will now consist entirely of gags about the weather, knock-knock jokes and, of course, attacks on George Bush.

Bonus: "Top Ten" poster from the Hope n' Change Gift Shoppe!
