Obama Wants You to Get Wasted

I hope free martini's are in the stimulus package. I'll take five mango obamartini's, por favor.

Is there no end to the historic merchandising and marketing opportunities? This is one of roughly eleventy million Obama-related signs I’ve seen in Chicago. I wish I had a picture of the one that said something about buying pants. No joke. There was a store window telling me that Obama would like me to buy a pair of pants. Not just any pants would suffice, I’m sure. The pants that were for sale in their store on that day were the ones that Barack wanted me to purchase. I didn’t purchase them. This is probably why we’re still in an economic crisis. Such a chicken and egg. How was I supposed to purchase them without money? I spoke of my pants dilemma earlier. It’s not that I don’t want to buy those pants, President Obama. Really. It’s not.

While I did not stop in to get an Obamartini, I wouldn’t mind if getting wasted became a national mandate. At least until this crisis is over. I’m thirsty. And anxiety-ridden. Can we get a vodka stimulus up in here?
