Carving A Niche

Avery has been programmed to say that Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States. She can also identify him now. So, whenever he's on the news (or yesterday, when one of his ads popped up on the computer), she points to his picture and says, "Barack Obama."

She will also let me know that "he lives in DC" and that "so do Amanda and Leon." (I believe at one point she assumed that Amanda and Leon lived WITH Barack Obama, which, if you guys are reading, might not be a bad idea considering the upcoming home renovation -- one would imagine there are a few extra guest rooms in the White House and you could argue that you're already paying for it...)

As the idea person here, I'd expect invites to at least a few State Dinners. I could be the special "politically retarded" guest who would try to change the topic from politics to fart jokes. Whaddaya say?

Gene Weingarten joked about Tim Russert's flatulence and look what happened. I wouldn't want you to do that to Obama. Sorry, but you're off the guest list.

I do appreciate the idea though. I've got a call in to his people, and the architect is working on lining up the contractors for Jan 20.

So true, so true...maybe I could joke about Bill O'Reilly's flatulence or Michael Savage's...perhaps I could write a book called "Savage Gas" -- lord knows my choice in partners has provided me with ample research in this area...

I could write the forward, believe me. I've developed considerable expertise in the field over the past 10 years... sigh.

Just reading this now. How many other times has this forum been used to defame me?!
