WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Residents of the District of Columbia were roused from their sleep by a massive fireworks display over the White House just after midnight, as President Obama declared what he called “a national day of gloating.”

“It would not be productive for this nation, going forward, to crow about our victory over political adversaries,” he said in a nationally televised address. “So let’s get it all out of our systems today.”



Immediately after the President’s speech, loudspeakers outside the White House blasted “We Are the Champions,” and the national day of gloating began.

In addition to a ticker-tape parade, the day’s events will include a screening on the Mall of a clip reel of Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s marathon Senate speech, punctuated by sad trombone sounds.

“Starting tomorrow, my message to the Republicans is, ‘Let’s work together for the American people,’ ” said Obama, wearing what appeared to be a beer hat. “But today my message is, ‘We won, bitchaz.’ ”

Have you read his latest crusade?
Senator Cruz has just taken the extraordinary step of blocking a nominee to the FCC until he promises Cruz that he won’t require Super PACs to disclose their funders.
Certain words obviously ARE in his dictionary.

The president is a class act and hid his gloating.... I did not. I love Andy for giving vent to what we all felt this week -

I think that our pres is inappropriate. A day of gloating. He gloats and bloats every day and his wife helps him with much evident pleasure.

This is priceless. And it might have been a good idea. Almost too bad the President has too much class to countenance it.

We should declare 17 Oct Butt F#@k a TeaPuke Day and maybe we won't have to go through this BS in Jan or Feb 2014 to have satiated Ted Cruz before he feels the Spirits tickling his anus.

I think the President deserves a little gloating after everything he's been put through! He's facing a minority of voters who is loudly insisting he shouldn't hold the office he does (and you can't tell me it's not because of race), but he managed in spite of that. He's been blocked at every turn by a house of Congress hostile to passing laws (isn't that what they're supposed to do? Never mind)--but the President has won through anyway. I think a little celebration (that's a nicer word) is merited.

But just for a day. Then he'll have to get back to work facing a political party after his downfall. Only in America...
