Occasional Reader Rob sent along a link to The Onion last evening with a subject line saying something about them getting their mojo back, and I agree. The mojo IS back. Here are the intro grafs from one of their latest pieces, in case ya missed it:
WASHINGTON—Having admittedly "reached the end of [his] rope," President Barack Obama sent a rambling 75,000-word e-mail to the entire nation Wednesday, revealing deep frustrations with America's political culture, his presidency, U.S. citizens, and himself.The piece itself is pretty danged funny, but I think the accompanying graphic is just too cool. Someone put a lot of thought into that... including the fact that Wen Jiabo apparently isn't available to chat. Heh. Click for larger, of course.
The e-mail, which was titled "A couple things," addressed countless topics in a dense, stream-of-consciousness rant that often went on for hundreds of words without any punctuation or paragraph breaks. Throughout, the president expressed his aggravation on subjects as disparate as the war in Afghanistan, the sluggish economic recovery, his live-in mother-in-law, China's undervalued currency, Boston's Logan Airport, and tort reform.
According to its timestamp, the e-mail was sent at 4:26 a.m.
And now it's Big Blue and those doofuses from Columbus. I know the outcome prolly won't please me, but there's always hope.
