Al Sharpton? Are you kidding? Has he ever even held a real job?
I could just imagine that conversation.
President Obama: Welcome Reverend Sharpton. Please have a seat.
Reverend Al: Thank you. Good to see you again. I have a couple of ideas to run by you, and I think they will get America working again.
President Obama: Cool. I could use some help. Things have been going, well, not exactly as planned.
Reverend Al: You got that right.
President Obama: (Dirty look)
Reverend Al: My first idea is pretty simple. We simply redefine welfare as a job. Millions of people will then be employed, and they will all be at least as productive as you and I are. And we could knock that nasty unemployment number down to nothing. Hell, Matthews and Olbermann will run hour long specials, and them big mouth Bee-atches on The View will have you on at least once a week. And if we also add in unemployment as a job, we will need to import people from, say, Haiti, to “fill” the positions.
President Obama: Interesting, but Limbaugh, Fox and those damn Teabaggers would see right through that. Besides, I have already created or saved lots of jobs.
Reverend Al: Sorry to put a damper on that, but do you really thing you should count saved Acorn jobs?
President Obama: Ok. That’s not funny. What else you got?
Reverend Al: Ok. Here’s an employment idea that has actually worked. You find some poor ghetto girl that is late for supper, smear her with dog crap ….
Reverend Al: But, but, but …
President Obama: And call Michelle. Somebody needs to put Al here on a diet.
President Obama: (To his secretary) Get me Olbermann and Matthews. I have an idea….
