Hawaiian 5-0

President Obama turns the tender age of 50 today (that’s 110 in White House years), and all his friends and competitors have been busying shopping for the perfect gift for the Commander in Chief.  Through my various media and government sources, I have obtained some information on the secret presents that the President will be unwrapping tonight.  For his celebration, he can expect to receive the following gifts:

  • From Vice President Joe Biden – an 8” x 10” signed and framed glossy photograph of Joe Biden
  • From former President Bill ClintonLeaves of Grass, a book of poems by Walt Whitman
  • From Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – thicker skin and sharper elbows
  • From First Lady Michelle Obama – a dinner with absolutely no redeeming nutritional value, along with a pass from doing the dishes for the night
  • From Speaker of the House John Boehner – 10 complimentary visits to the Hollywood Tanning salon
  • From House Majority Leader Eric Cantor – a dead fish, wrapped in a newspaper and wearing a copy of the Affordable Care Act
  • From Congresswoman and Presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann – a personalized copy of the Koran
  • From potential Presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry – the succession of Texas from the Union
  • From former Republican Vice-Presidential nominee, Sarah Palin – a fruitcake (she’s re-gifting it)
  • From former President George W. Bush – 2 wars, 1 economy in free fall, and an aromatherapy relaxation candle
  • From the Tea Party – a case of litmus tests (already opened)
  • From the GOP-controlled House of Representatives – economic uncertainty, dangling from a homemade necklace suitable for wearing at public events
  • From former pastor Reverend Wright – a “Wish You Were Here” postcard from Siberia, wishing him a Happy GD Birthday
  • From Al Sharpton – a list of personal references and a job application (same thing he gives the President every year)
