To prove he's ready, willing, and able to handle the really tough questions, Barack Obama has agreed to an hour-long "very special interview" with Barbara Walters on the day after Thanksgiving.
Ms. Walters, who is legendary for asking probing questions like "what kind of a tree would you be" and showing the ugly side of estrogen on the liberal squawkfest "The View," will ask the president why he forced Obamacare on an unwilling public, why he was rebuffed at the G-20 economic summit, why the economy has nosedived on his watch, and ask why the Democrats who voted with him were spanked like red-headed stepchildren in November's elections.
No, no - we're only kidding! Barbara will ask what's on his iPod, what he had for Thanksgiving dinner, and what Malia and Sasha will be getting for Christmas.
And adding to the hard-hitting journalism of the hour, Michelle Obama will also be on hand, so that Ms. Walters can comment on the huge size of the first lady's yams. And no, we're not being rude - we saw pictures of the yams being harvested from the verdant Whitehouse fields and they were the size of garden gnomes.
So mark your calendars now for this "must see" interview on the day after Thanksgiving. Which, entirely coincidentally, America's suffering merchants refer to as "Black Friday."
