President Barack Obama, sick to death of health care talk switched subjects today and told the press that he plans to really place a man on the moon before his administration's first term is over.
"I'm not talking about those little Ray Harryhausen men that jerked every time they moved and hopped across the surface with that silly looking flag stuck straight out. I knew when people believed that kind of shit, they'd believe anything I told them and that I would one day be President! Gimme Five!"
"But this time I want real men or real men and women and they can make a step together in sequence onto the moon's actual surface."
"No, make that a man and woman and a gay person , one white, one brown and one black."
So, the President says he'll need another 13 trillion dollars but he thinks the Chinese would loan it to us if we declared half of the moon for China and half for us.
"They can have the far side, but don't anybody repeat that or I'll deny it or say Hillery said it."
"Before I close, I'd just like to thank Rev. Jeremiah Wright setting me straight on that 1969 moondoggle. That's his very words, 'a moondoggle!'"
