image for 2001 Obama: Tragedy that 'Redistribution of Wealth' not Pursued by Supreme Court
Servant's entrance to the United States Supreme Court

Washington, DC - Barack Obama, in order to diffuse the growing controversy of Joe the Plumber, has switched to John the Justice, and is calling upon the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to spread the wealth around the members of the court a little.

Obama's crack election staff has uncovered a tragic disparity in the relative wealth between the justices, manifesting dramatically in how they get to work:

Of the nine top justices of the United States, only one - the Chief Justice -- gets to come to work by limo. The rest, in protest, all telecommute -- all except Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who gets a ride from her girlfriend -- Ruth doing the driving, of course.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
