New Whitehouse advisor
« on: April 13, 2009, 01:11:20 PM »
On an other note, today President Obama has has created a new position in his cabinet and appointed Johann Tetzel to be his new Liberal Guilt Assuagion Advisor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Tetzel

His first big project?  The Whitehouse pooch.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/11/AR2009041102484_pf.html

“The choice of a Portie raised one complication. The Obamas have long said they wanted a rescue dog. But the carefully bred PWDs almost never end up in shelters. Bo had been living with another family, but it wasn't a good fit, so the Kennedys acquired him for the Obamas.
As for the rescue pledge, the Obamas came up with a solution intended to lend a serious symbolic note: They're going to make a donation to the D.C. Humane Society. “

Says Tetzel on this situation, "As soon as a coin in the coffer rings / the rescue dog from purgatory springs."

Johann also will be advising Pres. Obama on matters of carbon credits, ways to port thousands of people in his entourage, and ways to assuage his guilt of excessive consumption.

Also says Tetzel, "As soon as a coin in the coffer rings / the polar bear from purgatory springs."

Other Guilt Assuaging Projects that Tetzel is currently working on for Pres. Obama include: Cap and Trade, Carbon offset credits, and a cute little Whitehouse vegetable garden complete with endangered bees.

 :-D
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
