In complete honesty, Hope n' Change looked at the news today, the news looked back, and then by mutual agreement we decided to more or less take the day off and alternate between sipping Key Lime rum spritzers and beating our head on the desk.
Seriously - look what we had to work with: Jesse Jackson shows up in Dallas to allegedly make sure that the Ebola patient will get "the best humanitarian care," but actually because it's physically impossible for Jesse Jackson to avoid being drawn to so many cameras in one place.
And speaking of Ebola, some experts are now coming forward to say that it may spread more easily than we're previously thought. "Dr. C.J. Peters, who battled a 1989 outbreak of the virus among research monkeys housed in Virginia and who later led the CDC's most far-reaching study of Ebola's transmissibility in humans, said he would not rule out the possibility that it spreads through the air in tight quarters." Which is a terrifying thought, but does make us feel slightly better about Jesse Jackson visiting the tight quarters where the Dallas Ebola patient was staying.
In London, four young men were arrested under suspicion of being about to launch terroristic beheadings. Shockingly (at least to many American liberals and politicians) the men all seem to have ties to radical Islam. What are the odds?
Meanwhile ISIS is about to win a huge blood-soaked victory in Kobani thanks to Obama's "barely there" air support of Kurdish fighters, Barry has departed on a four day fundraising binge, Lois Lerner is trying to break into neighbors' homes rather than face reporters asking questions about the IRS abuse of Conservatives, and the stock market took it up the keister yesterday. Sideways.
And adding insult to injury, we JUST got a notice in the mail today that our crappy, overpriced health insurance is going up in price another $4,000 - with no increase in benefits - due to the "rising cost of providing quality medical services" under Obamacare.
But all is not lost. Things like this video clip still make Hope n' Change laugh. Especially when we're drinking spritzers.
