It's rare that "earthshaking news" out of Washington is anything of the kind... but yesterday it actually happened when our nation's capitol was rocked by a 5.9 earthquake.
Despite the fact that virtually every government office in Washington was immediately evacuated, and airports and nuclear power stations shut down, Barack "No Drama" Obama showed remarkable courage by taking a briefing by phone while on the golf course and looking completely disinterested, except for chuckling a couple of times.
Still, his well-concealed concern for the security of our institutions and the lives of the innocent were clearly revealed when he blew his next putt.
Meanwhile, unfounded rumors that Washington had been destroyed entirely rocked Wall Street, causing the Dow Jones to skyrocket more than 322 points.
In honor of our current president, Hope n' Change believes that the geologic anomaly which produced the earthquake should be given a name which is not only accurate, but has been woefully underused by the mainstream media.
It is, of course...Obama's Fault.
