I like Obama, but if he doesn't start a national "Please Don't Tie Plastic Bags Over Your Heads" campaign and kill off thousands of contrarian dickhead Republicans, and start it soon, I'm going to consider this a failed presidency.

When Obama died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the Nation I helped conceive?"
Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed."
James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!"
Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Obama with a long cane and snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence."

The beatings and thrashings continued as James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the socialist leader.

As Obama lay bleeding and in pain, Allah appeared. Obama wept and said, "This is not what you promised me."
Allah replied, "I told you there would be 72 VIRGINIANS waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said? You really need to listen when someone is trying to tell you something!"

Well, in all fairness to Sarah Palin, most of the hatred towards her is due to the fact that she's dumber than a bag of hammers and more grifter than politician. The mysogny is more of a bonus thing.

Gyrfalcon: rnld: Did Thatcher have a State Funeral?

She did. And it was quite well attended, mostly by heads of state who had been in power when the Iron Lady was in power. All four living past presidents attended (Carter, Bush Sr. and Jr., and Clinton) and a representative of the Reagan family; and an official delegation sent by Barack Obama consisting of George Schultz and James Baker, who were Secretaries of State during Thatcher's time in office. Dick Cheney and Henry Kissinger also went, although not as official representatives (per the Daily Mirror).

It seems that Obama did what many people might have done and sent representatives who actually KNEW Lady Thatcher and worked with her personally; since she had been out of office for many decades, and out of public view for quite some time. It wasn't like she had been in office and dropped dead the same week.


More's the pity.
