Ask Joseph Cao What Obama Means By "Bipartisanship"

A softly-spoken, diminutive man who hates glad-handing and is too shy to ask people to vote for him, Cao is the antithesis of the bomb-throwing Tea Party candidate. A centrist, no Republican in the House of Representatives has proved more willing to work with the White House.

Talking about Obama, Cao sounds mournful, recalling how he had been invited to watch the Super Bowl with him (he missed it because he was caught in a blizzard) and had attended the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. The last time the men spoke, he said, was when Mr Obama shouted out "Good to see you Joe" at a bill-signing ceremony in July.

But when I ask him about Obama's attempts at bipartisanship, there was a flash of indignation. "He did talk about that," Cao responds. "So I'm wondering why he endorsed my opponent and made an advertisement for him."

As of last week, Richmond was the only candidate in the country for whom Obama cut a television ad. That was Cao's reward for his attempts at bipartisanship in Washington.

Pity Joseph Cao, he offered a drink to an alcoholic who promised it would be his last, then got slashed with the empty bottle. The president promises every day will be his last angry day, and that now is the time to move forward in a bi-partisan fashion, and every night he staggers home in a drunken rage.

And so it goes, Even the media, who had allowed love to strike it blind, is waking up to the truth about our drunken reprobate of a president:

Obama: Appeals for common ground, yet jabs GOP

From my favorite '80's progressive rock band,
Marillion, Scottish frontman Fish sings about his inevitabilities:
Many's the time I've been thinking about changing my ways
But when it gets right down to it it's the same drunken haze

Just for the record I'm gonna put it down, down
Just for the record I'm gonna change my life around

Just a revolutionary with a pseudonym
Just a barroom dancer on my final fling
Just another writer paying off my dues
Just finding inspiration well that's my excuse

Just for the record I'm gonna put it down, down
Just for the record I'm gonna change my life around
Just another empty gesture with an empty glass
Just another comic actor behind a tragic mask

But I've got no discipline got no self control
Just a little less painful here when my back's against the wall

...When you say I got a problem that's a certainty
But I can put it all right down to eccentricity
It's just for the record it's just a passing phase
Just for the record I can stop any day...
