The President urged his treasury minions to stop calling it a bailout and urged them to call it a 'monetary injection.'

"Hell, 'injection' is a great word! That's what we're callin' it over t' Iraq - 'democratic injection.' Whah, hell, my daddy taught me all about those - his generation and their democratic injection into Germany and Japan. Worked great, too! Just look at the both of them. Two fine countries. No Islamic terrorists at all anymore. So we did that for Iraq! And now we're doing it for Wall Street. Injection. Monetary... Is my horse saddled up yet? I'm so bored with Washington..."

The President went on to list off other injections that he would urge the next administration to consider:

  • Injecting democracy into Iran, North Korea, Libya, and Chicago.
  • Injecting the English language into France, China, India, Mexico, and Canada.
  • And injecting oil wells offshore, up in Alaska, down in the Gulf, and everywhere else.
