Weekend Update

Bulletin!  The Office of the President-Elect issued its weekly address:

I didn't know there WAS an office of the president-elect.  Where, exactly, is it?  In Barack's basement, judging from the cheesy paneling and the souvenir basketball in the corner.

But to move beyond the snark, listen to what he has to say, if you can.  It's really, really boring, and he doesn't say anything new.  Just that we can rise again, together, one nation, blah blah.  I'm concerned that he's going to drown us in this controlled access--always scripted, never questioned.  This will be interesting to follow. (Assuming, of course, we can stay awake.)

Nice job starting to have fun with the new administration. The kooks are gonna start comin out of the woodwork now. Each one with specific radical demands on their new friend in the white house. Conservatives can have a little fun on the surface, but we need to be seriously working on building a party that stands for conservative principles. I'm just not sure how to react to the basketball. It just makes me think that they still haven't figured out what to do with this "car" that they have caught. My bet is that we will never see the ball in a shot again.

I sincerely do not "get" the Obama worship. When he is doing his soaring speeches, that phony preacher schtick makes me want to poke my eardrums with sharp knives.

When he is doing his solemn whatever the heck this thing is, he is so unbelievably boring it is literally impossible for me to listen to at all.

It's gonna be a long four years.
