Easing our pain

From the Borowitz Report:

Obama Hopes to Calm Americans With Series of Boring Speeches

Economic Address Contains Opposite of Stimulus

Hoping to calm a nation whose nerves have been rattled by economic woes, President-elect Barack Obama today delivered the first in a series of numbingly boring speeches designed to put the nation to sleep.

Viewers who were able to remain awake for the entirety of his speech could boil down Mr. Obama's economic plan to two points: stimulate the American economy while tranquilizing the American people.

"The President-elect is well aware that Americans are having trouble sleeping," said chief of staff designee Rahm Emanuel. "These speeches are designed to fix that."

By that criterion, Mr. Obama's speech on economic matters today was a huge success, with over half of his audience losing consciousness five minutes in.

"That speech was a home run," Mr. Emanuel said. "If he gives more speeches like that, you can throw away your Ambien."

But even as Mr. Emanuel was touting his boss's sandman-like oratory, Mr. Obama's Surgeon General nominee, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, offered Americans the following warning: "If you are listening to one of President-elect Obama's speeches on the radio, do not attempt to operate heavy machinery."

Fill in the blank.

________________________________ bailout.

It is official.


Obama is on the cover of EVERYTHING.

Idiot, see Ron Wyden (D) Ore.

"In tough times people don't respond all that well to marginal changes, such as a small amount of money added per paycheck."

Really? Give me an extra $10 or $20 per paycheck, I'd greatly appreciate it. This idiot really does not have a clue.

Other Dems are whining too... Why?

Because Obama had the audacity to mention tax cuts....

The next bailout.

Back in early December I asked what the next bailout would be.

Somehow none of our readers suggested porn.

Sweet!

30 saves out of the entire teams' 63 wins ain't bad.

Neither is 30 saves out of 34 opportunities.
I wonder what that's like?

The key to education....

Cappuccino machines.

Nope, nowhere to cut the budget...

What if?

What if Barack Obama was picking the Packers new Defensive Coordinator?

Suppose he used the Panetta standard picking someone without any actual experience as a defensive coach in the NFL, who might he pick?

How about Ned Yost? I understand he needs a gig, he has been a coach for a professional sports team...

Your suggestions?

The race card always works

The Senate Dems caved in one day and are going to seat Burris.

A midwestern Governor with a 4% approval rating just kicked Harry Reid's ass.

UPDATE: That first report jumped the gun, he has not been seated yet.

Words. Just words.

Read this with the world around you in mind:

The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.

These are the times that try men's souls, indeed.

Still think its history repeating itself and not the people repeating history?

About that melting sea ice....

Wrong again.

Earlier this year, predictions were rife that the North Pole could melt entirely in 2008. Instead, the Arctic ice saw a substantial recovery. Bill Chapman, a researcher with the UIUC's Arctic Center, tells DailyTech this was due in part to colder temperatures in the region. Chapman says wind patterns have also been weaker this year. Strong winds can slow ice formation as well as forcing ice into warmer waters where it will melt.

Remember?

Do you remember that whole Nancy Pelosi speech about being a different kind of Congress about alowing bi-partisanship and all that happy stuff?

Not so much.

Nancy thinks bi-partisanship is allowing GOP members to be in the same room upon occasion, but they shall not be allowed to have any voice in the process.

Bend over America.
