BO's Incredibly Shrinking Mojo~
By Molli Nickell, Granny Guerrilla
Once upon a time . . . President BO-Mojo suffered another humiliating day. It began when he instructed Michelle to summon his tailor because his pants were too baggy and his shirt collars had become loose. He told her he was afraid that sloppy attire would mar the impeccable image he had so carefully created.
His request triggered a diatribe from Michelle.
First she punched him in the chest. "I'm busy, busy, busy planning our next family-and-friends vacation."
Then she called him "BO-zo" and gave him her squinty-eyed look over how he'd screwed up his image by allowing Secretary Doofus (John Kerry) to steal his leadership thunder over the Syria crisis.
"Besides," she screamed, "you didn't build your impeccable image, Valerie and I did that. And now you're destroying it by focusing on your stupid pick-up basketball games and golf game instead of paying attention to your plummeting job approval ratings."
Weary after a day of personal diminishment, that night, President BO-Mojo snuck into his secret crypt in the sub basement of the White House to consult wi th his most trusted adviser.
He tugged on his sagging shirt collar and asked, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, am I still the greatest of them all?"
The Magic Mirror Lady "poofed" into the mirror. "Would you like to rephrase your question, Dearie? As stated, you won't receive the answer you crave."
President BO-Mojo asked, "Why am I becoming insignificant? During my UN address, delegates snoozed or sent text messages. When I make my entrance to cabinet meetings, nobody kisses my hem or bows or rushes to pull out my chair. Even though the President of Iran (who wouldn't meet with me) accepted my phone call, this historic triumph was not heralded far and wide as a tribute to my talents at skillful diplomacy ."
The Magic Mirror Lady said, "Hmmmm. Why are you surprised? You conjured up the magic to 'Diminish-O-Bama's World,' and got exactly what you asked for."
"But . . . but . . . but, I didn't mean O-Bama as meaning me, Barack Hussein Obama, personally. I was referring to my world as 'the entire world' that I (sort of) control.
I meant to generate further reductions in America's economy, military power, medical care, gun ownership, Judeo/Christian traditions, and education system. I wanted to damage the credibility of everybody who's against me, like those Tea Party terrorists, the Fox and Blaze networks, and Rush Limbaugh."
