PRG (Paradigm Research Group. Some sort of goofball group.) is well aware of your intention to launch a high technology “New Deal” code named “New Apollo Project” to restore America’s economy. This massive program to subsidize green technology development, create jobs, expand the manufacturing base and reverse the trade imbalance will be likely accompanied by legislation prohibiting overseas hiring and offshore manufacturing.
All well and good, but it will not be enough. The challenges are too great and the response to these challenges too long delayed. It is essential the paradigm breaking technologies hidden in unacknowledged special access programs and sequestered behind the extraterrestrial truth embargo be included.
If you are in need of counsel to assist you in these matters, you have but to turn to your transition co-chair, John Podesta. His efforts to end the truth embargo and release all relevant government documents date back to at least 1993 and the Rockefeller Initiative. PRG believes he is fully aware of the extraterrestrial presence and is committed to creating more open, transparent governance. In this he is in sync with the chief financial backer of his Center for American Progress think tank, George Soros.
Reach out to your party’s allies within the military services and intelligence agencies. When you take office conduct the necessary meetings with the cross agency committees managing the extraterrestrial presence issue. In the spring of 2009, before the truth embargo becomes your embargo, initiate the most profound event in human history and begin rebuilding the trust of the American people in their government and the standing of your country in the world.
Dude. Some people need to put down the bong for a moment.

"A dude got trampled to death at Wal-Mart? Friggin' sweet!!eleventy!!!one!!! Send out a press release condemning Wal-Mart....QUICK!"- Bruce Both, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union
They can be used for everything from birth control to $58 examinations that include breast exams and pap tests. Men who receive healthcare at Planned Parenthood can use them too...Some Hoosiers 24-Hour News 8 talked to asked if the gift certificates could be used towards abortions. The answer is yes.On the surface, this looks like a nice way to say to your poor unmarried sister with five rugrats by five different fathers, hey, I care about your wellbeing and the wellbeing of your household. On the other hand, the minority communities (which Planned Parenthood seems to target) recognize that Planned Parenthood is encouraging minority genocide. (Good lord, did I actually type that?)
I'm sure we could have an interesting discussion here about teen pregnancies destroying the opportunities of young people vs the rights of the underprivileged to live their lives in whatever way they choose and who the hell are we to tell them not to have more children and the proper place of the state in being able to tell a woman whose children will have to be supported that maybe it's not a good idea to pop out another kid, but we're morons and we don't think that deeply, right?
To sum it up, if you really want to cause a stir at Christmas this year, you know what to get that special relative who has more children than they can possibly use (and we all have at least one), the one who you just want to tell, "Stop breeding already!"

I'm sure David Shuster will be outrageously outraged by this. Yeah.

In related news, the Daily Kos and Andrew Sullivan should be comedy gold today.

He learned stuff about the economy while helping ACORN up their false voter registration numbers 20 years ago, so it's cool.

Now, his response: "Well, it's technically still Changetm, because those people weren't in the Bush Administration, and that's change enough for me."
And, no, in case you were wondering, President Bush installing people of his choosing after his election wasn't Changetm.
Vouchers are totally dumb.

Maybe comic books are the peculiar affliction of middle-aged liberals. Mr. Obama's Democratic predecessor President Bill Clinton also read them, but he did it on the sly.
Mr. Obama is a "collector" -- a hard-core fan who goes to the trouble of slipping comics into polyester sleeves or Mylar bags before depositing them into specialty storage boxes never to see the light of day again.
Being a collector requires a level of psychic investment and discretionary cash this brother doesn't have. I stopped collecting comics in my late teens, but by the time I did, I had a complete run of Conans and a near-complete run of Spider-Man starting with issue No. 7. I sold them to comics dealers and other collectors in the early 1980s. Who knows, maybe Mr. Obama was one of them.
I imagine Michelle Obama's eyes bulged in horror the first time her husband came home from the Chicago Comicon babbling about having scored a near-mint copy of "Savage Tales No. 1" for hundreds of dollars less than he should have paid.
Comic collectors are usually completist -- which means they're inclined to hunt down whole runs of a title and its spin-offs because voices in their heads command them to.
They also carry checklists with them at all times just to keep track of their burgeoning collections.
Along with the nuclear codes, the new president will carry a list of missing "Marvel Team-Ups" he needs to fill the holes in his collection.
I am not a comics guy, so is this something out of the ordinary in that world? Should I be afraid?

Wait, are we will allowed to talk about pots and kettles, or is it racist?

Venezuela's increasingly bellicose [I'd hate to see what they called his prior acts.-ed.]President Hugo Chavez warned that he may put tanks on the streets if a former television star running for his Socialist Party loses a state election this month.
Chavez is expected to lose control of some key states and cities in the November 23 nationwide elections for governors and mayors.
In Carabobo, where a Chavez loyalist and former late-night talk show host risks losing the governorship [David Letterman's next career move?-ed.], Chavez told party activists he might use the tanks to "defend the people."
"If you let the oligarchy return to government then maybe I'll end up sending the tanks of the armoured brigade out to defend the revolutionary government[and spread the wealth-ed.]," he said late on Saturday.
In recent weeks the former tank officer also has threatened to jail the country's top opposition leader, Manuel Rosales, whom he accuses of corruption and of plotting to kill him [pot, meet kettle-ed.].
I looked to 2010, and saw this is Missouri and Ohio.
