TheOnesDay® No. 6

It's Wednesday, which means it's time to mock the First Ego.

Jeremiah Wright was arrested for murder, and convicted.  Sentenced to death, President Obama spends all day on the telephone trying to convince the Governor to give a stay of execution.

His last minute plea for clemency had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed.

As soon as he walked through the door into the private wing of the White House, Michelle started on him about, 'So that's all you can do? I thought you had some stroke? What, the old fist-bump lost its touch?'. And on and on and on.......

Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up the stairs.

While he was in the bath, the phone rang.

Michelle answered and was told that Rev. Wright had been granted a stay of execution after all, and would not be hanged that night.

Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go up stairs and give him the good news.

As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet.

'They're not hanging Wright tonight,' she said.

Remember Alinsky's Rules, folks.  Mockery is the most effective weapon.
