The crowning of the Messiah

Some humour on Coronation Day from ToThePoint News…

Q: Why are there so few real Barack Obama jokes?
A: Most of them are true stories.
Q. Why won't Obama laugh at himself?
A. Because it would be racist.
Q. Candidate Obama told us, "Yes We Can." What will President Obama tell us?
A. "Yes You Will."
Q. Why is the Secret Service doubling security on Michelle Obama immediately after the inauguration? 
A. If something happened to her, then Barack would be in charge. 
Have you ever noticed how Obama thinks nothing is impossible as long as somebody else has to pay for it? 
Giving money and power to Barack Obama is like giving liquor and car keys to a teenage boy.
Why does Barack Obama want change so bad? Because he wants every cent of it.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average Obama voter.
Q. What does the Obama Messiah say when someone sneezes?
A. I bless you.

And Rush Limbaugh was asked to join together with hundreds of others in taking 400 words to express his “hopes” for the Obama presidency.  I don’t need 400, he replied, I only need 4.  “I hope he fails.”


  1. Yeah yeah, it's all the liberals fault, Bush had nothing to do with what has transpired, it was all Clinton's fault. Rush doesn't speak for conservatives, he speaks for fucking idiots.

  2. Two Senators have collapsed at the Inauguration Luncheon. CNN is reporting that Obama is moving around the room to touch their foreheads.

    Stay tuned ...

  3. I thought I'd be woken this morning by the choirs of angels, but somehow I slept right through it...

  4. Didn't you see the star that appeared in the West about 5:30am?

  5. Anon - Bush had much to do with the current financial crisis. He failed to abolish the Federal Reserve, he allowed the printing of counterfeit money and permitted fractional (fraudlent) reserve banking by private institutions. He left the country in debt to its eyeballs and the Patriot Act and other legislation has greatly impaired the freedom of Americans. I don't rate him terribly highly at all. On the plus side, there have been no further serious terrorist attacks on American soil since 9/11.

  6. "On the plus side, there have been no further serious terrorist attacks on American soil since 9/11."

    Yeah. And the Japanese haven't attacked Pearl Harbour again either.


  7. PC: “Didn't you see the star that appeared in the West about 5:30am?”

    You too, PC? Now that’s spooky.

    May I offer a personal testimony? Some weeks ago, I was driving home in the late afternoon with my significant other, when a voice on the radio spoke to those “huddled around radios”.

    My spine, nay, my entire body tingled, while my significant other reported a quiver in her inner thigh, which took me aback somewhat, but I guess the Spirit goeth where it willeth. We gazed at each other in wonder. How did He know that at that very moment we would be fulfilling His Words?

    Since that day I have pondered on this -- dare I say spiritual? -- experience, but have failed to find a rational explanation. And now, President Obama has offered to be a “friend” of peace-loving peoples around the world. He wants to be my friend! I cannot but accept with boundless gratitude.

    The good news, PC, is that Obama wants to be your friend too. All you need do is open your heart and ask Him to enter. He will not refuse. The rewards are great. You will cease fretting about “malinvestments” and “business cycles” and bask in the warmth of the Obama brotherhood. Join us now. You know you want to.
