Hospitals and emergency rooms across the whole of the southern USA were on standby today, as medics warned that a drastic increase in the so-called Obama Flu could herald a nationwide epidemic.
Obama Flu, or to give it its correct medical name, Barackus Snifflus, is caused by the RNA viruses of the family Obamayxoviridae, and exclusively affects people of Caucasian extraction. Common symptoms are a general mistrust of non-white humans, chills, fever, muscle pains, severe headaches, coughing, wilting, weakness and general discomfort, culminating, eventually, in an outright and total hatred of niggers.
The condition has swept across the states of Texas, Alabama, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Mississippi, with some cases reported in Georgia, and doctors fear that, if urgent remedial action isn't taken very soon, that every white voter in the US could become infected.
The conditions of many of those infected with the virus was said to have been made worse this weekend, with the news of a potential scandal involving New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, who has had to withdraw as US President-elect Obama's nominee for commerce secretary, due to a pending investigation into a company which has done business with his state.
Obama Flu victims will find this a bitter pill to swallow, after all their other 'medication', and may, alas, find their illness incurable.
More as we get it.
