Obama gift certificates; why people think ‘The Onion’ is real.

A triumph of hope for no change over reality!

Frequently on funeral notices we see a request from families of the deceased for donations to the Leukemia foundation, Heart Foundation, or another appropriate area of medical research, or perhaps a charity dear to the heart of the departed one, in lieu of flowers. Some church groups opportunistically advertise that for a donation to them in your will you will be blessed.

On the other hand, on occasions reporters are left red faced when it is pointed out to them that the link they have used in their latest 'in depth report' is from 'The Onion' but then, even that venerable publication has a job staying ahead of the game in the current political environment.

Possibly the sickest idea so far comes from the Obama/ Biden campaign:

Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?

Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.

Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy—so get started today.
Just hit the ‘Register with Obama 2012’ button, and up comes the user friendly log in form along with the slightly changed ‘Jewish friendly’ message:
Register with Obama 2012
Got a special milestone or event coming up?

Instead of another gift card you’ll forget to use, ask your friends and family for something that will go a little further: a donation to Obama for America. Register your next celebration—whether it’s a birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary—with the Obama campaign. It’s a great way to show your support for a cause that’s important to you on your big day.

Just log in or sign up to build and customize your page—and congratulations!
Just the thing for the East coast old money liberal elitist who has everything, or perhaps the Hollywood lefty condecentionist.


  1. The economic group hit hardest by the Obama years has been the satirists. When reality is so far beyond the craziest shit a satirist can even imagine...tough times indeed.

    OTOH...don't have a link handy, but this is true...I recently read where the TV comedians and late night talk show hosts just can't find any Obama material to make jokes about. Are you kidding me? This guy is a friggin' GOLD MINE for ridicule.

    Oh, wait, never mind the EPA closed the gold mine.

  2. I notice the Cube has little trouble lampooning him, although in it's case it is more like what Will Rogers referred to when he said, "I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts."

    When I mentioned this latest effort and mentioned it to the wife and some friends they all thought I was kidding them. That might be how he gets away with it.
