America Buys All That Change Bullshit

BARACK Obama swept to victory last night as millions of Americans lapped up all that bullshit about change.

'Change... yes... of course'

The Illinois senator made history as the first black American to become President and the 44th man to win the office with a lot of vague platitudes and an army of creepy spin doctors.

He told a crowd of 250,000 supporters in his home city of Chicago: “Remember, change is something that happens in the middle of the night when we’re all fast asleep and very often the next morning no-one can tell that anything has actually changed.

“I promised you change you can believe in, I did not promise you change you can actually see.”

He added: “You believe in Jesus don’t you? Right, but have you ever seen Jesus? Exactly. Just making sure we’re all on the same page.”

Mr Obama said he would bring about change by working closely with the vast and terrifying multi-national corporations that had funded his campaign and pledged to end the war in Iraq in order to create a much bigger war in Afghanistan.

“But instead of some middle-aged white guy doing it, it’ll be me and I’m half-Kenyan. D’you see?”

Bill McKay, a college student from Denver, said: “I can’t believe I now live in a country where an African American can be elected to the presidency after spending just $600 million on advertising.”

He added: “Give me a hug!”

Meanwhile, in the UK, thousands of people talked about staying up all night to watch the drama unfold, but then didn’t.

Martin Bishop, from Oxford, said: “I was going to follow the coverage and have the significance of every result explained to me by Lord Dimbleby but then, at the last minute, I decided to go to bed because I don’t care.”

Denys Hatton, from Guildford, added: “If your life is such that you’re placing all your hopes in a politician, then may I humbly suggest you get yourself a crate of superlager and a cardboard box and stop wasting everyone’s time.”
