    Look, folks. You voted for Obama, this is what you knew you were going to get. Don’t try to act shocked.

      Was anyone on the ballot a better option? Anyone at all? Cause it didn’t look that way to me. Of course, I did a write-in.

      Doesn’t that logic work for every president, then? Pretty much, “There go those clowns in Congress again. What a bunch of clowns.”

      Not very helpful.

      You preach it, sister! President Palin would have given us the dawn of Aquarius and two unicorns in every garage by now.

    The creepiest part of the story is the officer is considered undercover, and her name (but not her gender) is a state secret.  So we don’t even know whose resignation to demand.
