Wave, dummy! The president’s going by!
Blog Guy, I see the Obamas are vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard again this summer. Those lucky residents! They can just walk out on their porches and balconies and see Barack and Michelle. What fun!
Well, yes and no. It’s more work than it was the last time Obama went to the Vineyard.
Let’s face it. He’s not as new or popular as he used to be, but the White House still wants it to look like he’s drawing the crowds.
So, folks have been ordered to have someone at every window, and balconies must have at least two people on them, no matter what.
Look here, at the Peterson place, in Oak Bluffs. This woman has resorted to using a mannequin on her balcony, just to reach her quota. Think of the humiliation.
Yes, that poor woman!
No, I mean the mannequin! In 2008 he was the chairman of Vineyard Dummies for McCain and Palin!
Yeah, I see he needed some convincing. So do you think that seagull came to see the president?
Nah, even on Martha’s Vineyard, gulls just wanna have fun.
