Top Ten Things Barack Obama said to Rush Limbaugh in the Hospital


10) "Is it true they're giving you Viagra to keep from rolling out of bed?"
9) "To judge by your weight, I see the food's not too bad here."
8) "I just spoke to your doctors. Why are they about to prep you for a rectal exam?"
7) "While you were out, the last 40 Republicans in the Senate finally wised up and became Democrats."
6) "The health care bill passed while you were out and it comes with weight conditions and, unfortunately, you're going to fall about 150 pounds over the guidelines."
5) "Al Franken's been covering for you. You don't mind, do you?"
4) "Glenn Beck stole your gold microphone. Hey, gold is up this year."
3) "Bob Novak's been trying to reach you. He says to bring asbestos underwear."
2) "I told the New York Times you've been stalking me and my family. The Honolulu police are outside waiting for you."
1) "I just overturned the 22nd Amendment and am still young enough to run for another 4 or 5 terms."

The list was really funny, but the poster was priceless.

A year ago tonight I was looking forward with great anticipation to the presidency of Barack Obama. I thought that this may very well be the "new age" that I have been looking forward to for most of my life. What a difference a year makes. Thus far, as you might imagine, I have been let down by this president. That is why it is so funny to see him labeled by the Right a "radical socialist". If Obama were half as radical as the Conservative media is trying to portray him, people like me wouldn't be one tenth as disappointed in him as we are.

Don't misunderstand, I am still grateful that he was elected last year. I thank God every day that John McCain will not be sleeping in the Executive Mansion tonight and that Fascist Barbi will not be a heartbeat away from the presidency. While it is true that he has not yet given us the "change we can believe in", it is still too early in his term to make any final assessment. There is some time for optimism - although that time is dwindling rapidly. Still, the alternative to Obama's election last year is just too weird to even contemplate. We should be grateful for that - I guess.

One thing that puzzles me is the most recent talking point being used against the man - that he does not express emotion or anger. That he is too cerebral. Isn't that what we want in a president? In this way he is much like Jack Kennedy. The angriest statement JFK ever made while president was when he lashed out at "the utter contempt" of the executives at U.S. Steel toward the American people. But even in this instance, Kennedy's tone was measured and restrained. He was not a man given to freaking out. Seriously, would we like a repeat of the shoot-from-the-hip, cowboy idiocy of the Bush years? Look at all the good that did us. Obama's seeming, contemplative demeanor is one of the things about the man that reassures me. Call it a silly quirk in my psychological make up, but I like my presidents to think things through. What can I tell you, I'm kind of funny that way.
