|Putting the Tango in "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot."|
As a case in point, following the carnage in Brussels and the president's much-criticized appearance at a Cuban baseball game with new BFF Raul Castro, Obama (and his huge entourage) jetted off to Argentina where he performed a pelvis-grinding tango at a state dinner to prove his strength to ISIS.
Whether this will have the desired deterrant effect on those suicide bombers who plan to do their pelvis grinding in the afterlife remains to be seen.

We apologize for the seemingly blasphemous nature of the above cartoon, but it reflects our annoyance with the annual White House Easter Egg Roll which will be held on Monday (because Sundays are, first and foremost, reserved for golfing).
As usual, visiting the White House's website for the event would give you no idea that Easter has any religious significance whatsoever. Aliens (the kind from outer space, not the kind enjoying your tax dollars) would struggle to find any prevailing theme behind a day dedicated to Michelle Obama, a giant rabbit, random activities (including those mentioned above, plus cooking classes, storytime, healthy eating lessons, and hula hoops) and an epic quest to find autographed souvenir eggs (in "banquet blue," "gala green," "party pink," and transgendered "sunset soiree") which can also be purchased for $29.95 for a six pack.
Look, we're not against making the day fun for kids and families of all faiths, nor do we want anything even flirting with theocracy. But if the White House is holding a huge observation of the holiday, it strikes us as insane and insulting to not at least mention Christianity somewhere in the mix.
Seriously, if we're supposed to believe that it's a major blow to ISIS to see our president bravely going to baseball games and doing the Lambada with a slit-skirted tart, shouldn't we worry about what message of cowardice is being sent when Obama takes Jesus out of Easter?
In any event, Hope n' Change extends sincere wishes that our many Christian readers will enjoy a very special and meaningful Easter this Sunday.
