You probably think this post is about you. Don’t you?
Apparently The Great O likes to describe himself as being a man of humility.
To that I say: Bwhahahahahahahahahahahah! Hahahhahahahhahahaha! Hahahahahahahahaha. Haha. Ha.
Oh, that’s a good one.
PS: Here’s Jim Treacher’s take. He’s funny. (Treacher, not Obama)

It seems a lot has happened simce I’ve been out of the country.
Dimwit 1: Congressman Steve Cohen. This idiot hits way too close to home for me being from Memphis. He has the audacity to compare the Tea Party movement to KKK members. Andrew Brietbart is still offering $100,000 for proof of racism. Where’s the proof, Congressman?
Dimwit 2: Congressman Hank Johnson apparently believes that adding American Marines to the island of Guam will cause it to tip over. For realz. I wonder if he’s best friends with Cohen. I wouldn’t be surprised. I can only imagine the conversation they would have. Chuck Dizzle at knifework.net has some great jokes about it, so he’s probably racist. *sigh*
And for the final Dimwit: The one and only commander-in-chief, leader of the free world, most powerful man in the universe, Barack Hussein Obama. The 17 minute, 2500 word response as to why we need to pay more taxes for Obamacare just tops it all off. Where’s the teleprompter when you need it? Was it on vacation that day?
Slater sums it all up nicely and even adds Phil Hare to the list. Boy those democrats, they are on a roll. Keep it boys. November is right around the corner.

Golly there’s a lot going on in Washington right now. We got healthcare going down. Plus, Obama signed another jobs bill today that is being overshadowed by all the healthcare talk. Of course I don’t need to remind you that we have lost well over 4 million jobs in 2009 since Obama took office and passed that huge stimulus (you remember, right?). But we can all sleep better knowing the government is stepping in to save us again! Thank God for The Barack Obama. In honor of the passage of this bill today, I thought I would play one of my favorite little tunes. Enjoy.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to ya. I learned something new today. Apparently our commander and chief, our fearless leader, our great all-knowing, all-seeing transformational one has Irish roots! I really had no idea. But it seems to be old news. Anyway, here’s what O’bama said today:
“few nations so small have had such an enormous impact on another” country: in the United States 36 million people claim Irish ancestry.
Including the president, apparently. Obama informed Cowen of his own Irish bona fides. He said that he could trace his ancestry on his mother’s side to County Offaly, Ireland, which happens to be taoiseach’s home turf.
“I believe it was my great-great-great-great-great grandfather,” Obama said to good-natured laughter. “This is true. He was a bootmaker, if I’m not mistaken.”
A bootmaker! Really?! How fitting. Just think, who knew that O’bama would now be using those boots to walk all over you and me. I’d like to take one of those boots and give him a solid kick in the… well you know where.
PS: I feel compelled to mention that my parents got married on St. Patrick’s Day (happy anniversary Mom and Dad!), so for obvious reasons, they were not wearing green that day, a trend I have continued my entire life. Oddly enough, I am wearing a pink sweater today…
Also, Jim Treacher, I hope you get some much needed rest.

At least in delaying teen sexual activity. The study comes after Obama cut funding from the abstinence-only education early last year. Of course pro-abstinence advocates have been touting data like this for years. From the Washington Post:
Sex education classes that focus on encouraging children to remain abstinent can persuade a significant proportion to delay sexual activity, researchers reported Monday in a landmark study that could have major implications for U.S. efforts to protect young people against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.
The “landmark study” was conducted in both 6th and 7th graders, and found that 2/3 of the children receiving abstinence ed waited longer to become sexually active where as half of the 11-13 year olds attending “other classes” became sexually active. Who’d a thunk it?
I mean, who in their right mind would have ever thought that if we told our young children NOT to have sex, as opposed to giving them condoms and practically saying, “have at it kiddies,” it might actually delay their sexual behavior… and pregnancies… and sexually transmitted diseases.
Now I don’t have kids yet, but if given the choice I would much rather them hear this: (Psst, I know its Zac Efron and 17 Again, but still!)
*Sigh.* I guess I’m just an old fuddy-duddy after all.

Apparently all the cool kids are doing it. Hey it doesn’t take much to convince me. I’m totally down. I would just graciously add a few more suggestions.
- Do a shot of tequila every time Obama looks from the right teleprompter to the left teleprompter, and back.
- When Nancy Pelosi blinks, take a shot of Botox ( I understand Botox is not alcohol, but still addicting none the less, so it should count).
- Every time Obama uses the pronouns I or me, just sip your brew (he will do this a lot, so I can go easy on you for this one. I mean we don’t want you totally wasted in just the first 10 minutes).
I think if we indulge in these drinking games, Obama may get the hopeful response from all of us that he wants. Because I don’t know about you, but alcohol puts me a GREAT mood. “I love everyone, and America is awesome! Yeah!” At least momentarily. Tomorrow morning, well that will be an entirely different story.
PS. Here’s a whole bunch more. HuffPo with a sense of humor. Never thought I’d see the day.

Obama’s love of Teleprompter extends even into the elementary schools, lest he forget (his words of course). God forbid he make a tragic mistake in front of the children, you know, like misspelling p-0-t-a-t-o-e, err p-o-t-a-t-o. The media would never let him live it down.
PS: Another great post by Lori Z here.
