Their Version of Lipstick on a Pig

by Venomous Kate

As if I didn’t already find President Obama annoying enough, the man interrupted my daily TMZ viewing to announce he’d signed the economic stimulus bill.

My first impression: just twenty-nine days in office and his hair already noticeably more gray. Guess losing sleep wondering how to keep all of the promises made to different voter blocs with competing interests will do that to a person.

Then I felt bad for being so superficial, so I tried paying attention. After noticing that he was stumbling far more in this speech than ever before, I couldn’t help wonder if maybe even he was having a hard time buying the line of B.S. coming out of his mouth.

In case you are one of those fortunate enough to be employed — and therefore unable to watch either TMZ or the Obama show during the day — the gist of the speech was:

Blah, blah, blah. This here plan isn’t going to fix everything. Blah, blah, blah. Don’t expect miracles. In fact, we’re not sure if it’s going to fix a damn thing at all. Blah, blah, blah. Oh, we’re already working on a second stimulus bill because we realize this one is fucked up. Blah, blah, blah. Also, anyone who doesn’t agree with me is a weenie engaging in partisan politics.

Or something like that.

Meanwhile, the Dow Jones closed -297.81, a sign that businesses aren’t buying Obama’s blather, either.

Which just goes to show that you can put frosting on a pile of shit but it is still a pile of shit.

  1. You watch TMZ?

    Oh, my.

  2. Yes, I do. I have an immense appreciation for both snark and schadenfreude, and they never fail to deliver a helping heaping of both.

    Also, I’m far too damn lazy to look for the remote after my local Fox affiliate’s noon news broadcast.

  3. Snark and Schadenfreude: That’s an excellent name for a blog!

  4. I needed a pick me up, glad I stopped by! Nicely said!

  5. Now that he is spending all our damn money…. We can all hope and pray for change in the next presidency…because he will not be a 2 term president.
    Jimmy Carter part 2…. Here we go… grab your balls now, cause he has our wallets and we cannot grab that back!
    Maybe He and Jimmy are on the phone nightly?
    I will stop ranting….. but the guy reminds me of a spoiled rotten little brat that needs to have his butt spanked but good.

  6. All of this crap and the liberal media is asleep at the wheel,Heaven forbid if any one says anything bad about the messiah Hussien
