Black Man Given Nation’s Worst Job

The Onion, as usual, has the most twisted look at the election results.

WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United States of America. In his new high-stress, low-reward position, Obama will be charged with such tasks as completely overhauling the nation’s broken-down economy, repairing the crumbling infrastructure, and generally having to please more than 300 million Americans and cater to their every whim on a daily basis. As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind. The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and activist Mark L. Denton, “It just goes to show you that, in this country, a black man still can’t catch a break.”

    It goes without question that George W. Bush and his administration has disgraced the oval office in the worst possible fashion. Between Bush and Cheney, we had two individuals who put their own self interests ahead of the American people. I hope they both choke on their branch water and bourbon when they get back to Texas – their oil rich buddies will be there ready with a check. Barack Obama has an awesome hill to climb. We, as dedicated Americans, need to support him step by step and do our part.
