Line of the Day

In Part I of our story, we discussed the fact that the Food and Drug Administration today moved to classify Barack Obama as a Schedule II controlled substance.
PART II How far has the craze spread?
Experts say that the FDA was prompted to act by a converging series of
events. Foremost among them was a phone call from Karl Rove,
asking "What the Hell is taking you people so long? Kneecap
that man, and do it ASAP." But a contributing factor in the FDA's
totally non-partisan and scientifically sound concern was the speed and
scope of the Obama crisis. Once considered a designer drug,
passed around by wine-sipping liberals at Chicago cocktail parties for
their own amusement, the phenomenon has spread to smaller towns and
Once plagued by nothing more than meth labs, brucellosis, inbreeding,
and nightmarishly bad weather, the small community of Ringworm,
Arkansas was recently rocked by the discovery of an Obama distribution
ring being run out of the basement of a local man's house. As
hazmat-suited workers carted off the bumper stickers, flyers, and yard
signs, the local Sheriff could only shake his head. "Look at this
neighborhood-- these are all good families. One spark and that
place could have gone up like a bomb-- there would have been giddy
optimism all over the place, and God knows how many families we'd have
to deprogram." Asked if allegiance to a political candidate, even
one as addictive as Obama, was actually physically dangerous when
compared to, say, heroin, the sheriff replied. "It's plenty
harmful -- if Hillary's people catch you at it."
sheriff concurred. “Oh, sure he’s harmless. Just a little fun, right?
That’s what the yuppies used to say about cocaine. Then we had crack,
then freebasing, then speed balls, then the next thing you know I flunk
out of Beloit and have to get work in Law enforcement. What?”
Law enforcement officials are cautiously optimistic that the Obama
craze can be stopped. It has not yet sunk deep roots in New York
or California, and the drug is in limited supply. There is so
little of it in fact that it is often highly diluted into 'commercials'
or even 'position papers,' a form so weak that it produces almost
none Obama's characteristic euphoria, and which is often shunned
in favor of extasy or cappuccino. The purest form, 'live speech,'
is so popular that users will line up for hours and "donate" hundreds
of dollars to street dealers to get a fresh supply--and even then they
sometimes have to settle for a cut-down version known on the street as
'video.' Still they come, and the police, Homeland Security, the
the Republican National Committee (now conveniently centralized into
one office!) are concerned that it may be too late to stop the wave.
In one West Virginia hollow, Fergus
McWhoop (no relation to Muskrat News Editor In Chief Thurgood McWhoop)
is an example of the scale of the problem. McWhoop's family (OK, he
and Thurgood are cousins, but Thurgood isn't in the business) has been
bootlegging for more than a century. Moonshine, untaxed cigarettes,
marijuana, meth, Canadian Xanax, home-made skin care creams, you name
it. If the federal government has tried to stamp it out, the McWhoops
have made it, sold it, moved it, snorted it, and made crude
digital-video infomercials for it. (Thurgood was just a kid! He
doesn't do that any more.) Now they're bootlegging Barack, which is
ironic given that Obama has been compared to moonshine by more than one
competitor. Unlike the liquid moonshine, though (and the hand cream),
Obama does not cause blindness. Yet.

"They said absinthe caused insanity,
and it was banned for decades," said Simone le Fleur, self-described
'unpretentious, working class feng shui critic.' "Now they want
to ban Obama just because he makes people irrational. I ask you
-- is it irrational to believe one man cann change the ingrained
political habits of 300 Million people? It is? Oh.
Crap. What if he has a hot wife and a big smile?"
