No matter where you come down in the Edward Snowden "hero or traitor" debate, you can't help but notice that "No Drama Obama" seems singularly sanguine about not pursuing the young cyber-culprit. Barry promises no jets, no phonecalls, and no wheeling and dealing - because it's all no big deal, right?
Wrong. It is a big deal, and something stinks to high heaven about Barry's casual attitude toward this security breach. Which made Hope n' Change think about one of Snowden's first comments to the press a few weeks ago, in which he asserted that "even a low-level agent (such as himself) could tap the president's phone calls if desired." Hmmmm...!
Or, perhaps, that low-level agent could also get copies of the president's long-sealed personal records? Birth certificate, passport records, police records, college records, medical records, check stubs to Bill Ayres for "ghostwriting services?" The mind boggles - but it would sure help explain why Barry is suddenly so interested in every issue other than this one.
It seems that in the age of Obamacare, the best health insurance you can have is a copy of the president's secrets...and the know-how to spread them if anything happens to you.

There are so many hot stories at the moment that I couldn't do justice to them all. But luckily, the Hope n' Change vaults are packed to the brim with cartoons and commentary which are (unfortunately) still timely. Click on the linked titles to read the accompanying historical (and hopefully hysterical) commentary!
