Furthering his prospects for the Presidentical Election of 2008, Barack Obama has proudly revealed the many prestigious (and surprising!) institutions that he thoughtfully, earnestly, even passionately considered joining after high school:
1st: Considered joining the military. He applied for a national guard position for the state of Rhode Island...however, both positions were already full.
2nd: Considered joining the race for Mayor of a small town in Alaska. However, Sarah Palin was running. Barack refused to wear cute eyeglasses.
3rd: Considered joining the prestigious Veteran Fighter Pilots and POWS of Viet Nam. But from Saigon to Hanoi, back in '79 he couldn't find one American jet fighter to practice with-nor even one American!
4th: Considered joining the police force-but he hated donuts.
5th: Considered joining the Hawaii Firemen's Academy-but no one could take his application because they were busy putting out a volcano.
6th: Considered joining the National Riflemen's Association-but they insisted he shoot a gun.
7th: Considered the KKK-but they would only accept his white half.
8th: Considered joining the Republican Party-but they would only accept his Christian half.
9th: Considered joining Ralph Nader who considered poor young Barack half-baked.
