White House Declares New National Holiday

President Obama, exercising his new mandate, declared a new national holiday honoring his election to a second term in a press release titled Up Yours! The President kicked off the new day of reflection and celebration in Washington by continuing his castigation of the rich, for “not wanting to pay another dime” in taxes and for seeking to “pay down the deficit” on the “backs” of his constituents.

In reply, Congressional Republicans issued their own press release ridiculing the new holiday as National Sarcasm Day. Americans earning $250,000 a year are not all that rich, they claim, at least not filthy rich. But one more dime, they concede, tongue firmly in cheek, is not too much to ask in order to avoid the fiscal cliff. They invite every American, in a sarcastic initiative of their own, to send a shiny dime to the White House.

The White House, in reply to the Republican reply, points to its previous press release, Up Yours, which reminds those still waiting for the Florida election results that the President won and that people have given him a broad mandate to do pretty much whatever he wants.
