Actually, as we’ve long known, there’s no way for satire to improve upon the absolutely absurdity of real life — not to mention whatever planet the current president inhabits.
But first, a quick flashback, reminding us that this really is two administrations in one:
— The Daily Caller, July 28th.
— The Heritage Foundation, today.
Punitive liberalism? Your tree is soaking in it, baby. (Will the administration be raiding Christmas tree dealers, a la their raids on another famous wood-based merchant?) And as P. J. O’Rourke famously once said, “I have only one firm belief about the American political system, and that is this: God is a Republican and Santa Claus is a Democrat.” Barry just wants to make it official. And as with everything done by the Obama Administration, it’s made for Drudge moment, with Barry in a SCOAMF Who Stole Christmas pose scaring the bejesus out of a small child, and even Janet Napolitano looking up, rolling her eyes at her boss, and wondering, just like the rest of us, what the heck is going on, and how do we get out of this mess?
In contrast, in keeping with the state’s long tradition, Wisconsin’s Gov. Walker is taking a much more progressive tack when it comes to Christmas.
