I swear to God, one can barely tell the difference:
Obama Blanks On What He's Ineffectually Urging Congress To Take Action On Now
President Obama’s fill-in-the-blank sales pitch
Tout what he’s already done. Say the public’s in his corner. Demand Congress do something. Lament Washington dysfunction. Lay out his own plan. Avoid details. Urge voters to keep up the pressure. Warn it won’t be easy. Bask in the applause...
I suppose it's easy to tell that "A" is The Onion, only because the reporting is more honest. Although, to be fair to Politico, their piece does include a video panel mocking what it calls Obama's "Mad Libs" speeches.
Hey, we've called Obama a "mad lib" for a while now. Nice to see Politico is finally catching on. And catching up to The Onion.
Which may be the saddest commentary yet on the state of political media....
