Surely The Onion, like most elements of pop culture, has a decidedly liberal bias. Nevertheless I've always enjoyed it because they do willingly take potshots at the Left as well.  This one is pretty good:

A few highlights....


Quote
WASHINGTON—Recent side-by-side photographic comparisons of Americans before and after he assumed the presidency have confirmed the stress of Barack Obama's time in the White House has taken a significant toll on the U.S. populace, dramatically accelerating the nation's signs of aging.

"Imagine waking up every morning knowing that Obama has to make the final call on everything from national security to the economy, and is constantly trying to balance those decisions with what is politically advantageous," Vestum added. "That's a very isolating, powerless feeling that would make any citizen appear more haggard."
.
.
.
"Yes, citizens have developed crow's-feet and bags under their eyes, but in their defense, the Obama White House is a pressure cooker for Americans unlike anything most ordinary people will ever experience," Democratic strategist Mitch Kaplan said. "Think about it: You're a United States citizen who has to live with the decision to elect Barack Obama every single day, a decision that constantly affects the entire planet. You'd only sleep four or five hours a night, too."
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men, living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."

Some days I feel like I am back in the Navy!

But all I need to do is add some twitches & gesturing if caught in public reacting to Obamunism!   ;D

There's a guy on the FReepers (John Semmons) who irregularly posts a satire page. His spoofs are so good that it is difficult to tell them from "real" events. It trips folks up all the time.

This onion piece was meant to be satirical but it is too true to be funny, and too untrue as regards GW (in their lame attempt to be "even-handed") to be credible.

...or maybe I just gotta warped sense of humor
