Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said today that President Obama was willing to look at a tax on 4 hour erections caused by Cialis or other erectile performance drugs.
Noting that the new health care bill includes a tax on discretionary personal body enhancements, such as tanning, Gibbs disclosed that, "even though the President obviously has no need for either tanning or erectile enhancement agents, he believes that those who do should be willing to pay for these pleasurable benefits."
When asked by Helen Thomas if Gibbs thought that because Obama is African-American, these taxes might be viewed as discriminatory against people of light complexion who are not as virile as men of Obama's heritage, Gibb's responded:
"Helen, knowing that the President is a black man, I find that question both odious and invideous. The President would never penalize anyone for being white. Trust me."
