On MSNBC, Harry Belafonte advised Obama on his political opponents: “work like a third world dictator and just put all these guys in jail”. Tally him. He’s bananas.
A $60 billion aid bill to help victims of Hurricane Sandy includes such things as $150 million for Alaskan fisheries. Maybe they should throw in a few bucks for geography education in the DC area.

U.S. Senator John Kerry was reported Sunday set to be named Secretary of State. He’s a known commodity nationally. Sixty percent of Americans can identify a photograph of John Kerry, the bad news is that the majority still thinks he’s the dad from the Munsters.
President Obama’s address on gun violence preceded Sunday’s NFL game airing on NBC. It changed nothing. One team’s offense operated out of the pistol, the other team operated out of the shotgun and the winning TD was scored when they completed a bomb.
President Obama backed tighter gun control laws that ban assault rifles and assault pistols. It won’t work. Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the country and there’s so much lead flying through the air that residents eat paint chips just for the vaccine effect.

It looks like President Obama is going to pick John Kerry to be our next secretary of state. This is a very strategic move when it comes to foreign policy. Obama plans to use Kerry to bore our enemies to death.
A 2009 Ford F-150 pickup truck, once owned by President George W. Bush, is going up for auction in a couple of weeks. All the proceeds will go to military families. President Obama should buy this truck because when something goes wrong he can blame it on Bush.
Christmas is on Tuesday, provided that the world doesn’t end on Friday, which is the end of the Mayan calendar. Some believe there will be massive earthquakes and floods. Others think a planet will collide with the earth. I believe the end of the world will come about in a much stupider way, like Joe Biden spilling a Mountain Dew on the nuclear launch panel.

For the next six weeks Hillary will be in an orthopedic pants suit.
It’s rumored that John Boehner and President Obama are considering a partial deal to avoid the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. Yeah, it’s RUMORED that a PARTIAL deal is being CONSIDERED — or to put that in layman’s terms: We’re going off this cliff.
Yesterday, President Obama and John Boehner talked about the fiscal cliff for 45 minutes, but the White House will not release a transcript of their conversation. However, they did offer to have Joe Biden re-enact it with puppets.

There’s a photo going around with President Obama playing with a staffer’s son who’s dressed as Spider-Man. Obama was like, “Shouldn’t you be fighting the Green Goblin?” And the kid was like, “shouldn’t you be working on the fiscal cliff?”
