WASHINGTON (BHN) - An apparently confused President Obama inexplicably summoned some of TV's lowest rated television personalities to advise him on how to handle the failing US economy and looming "fiscal cliff."
Among the guests were a number of MSNBC hosts including Rachel Maddow, Al Sharpton, Lawrence O'Donnell, and a presumably heavily sedated Ed Schultz.
"The President was a community organizer, not some kind of economics guy," Jay Carney told reporters when asked why Obama would seek fiscal advice from individuals who are largely unsuccessful in their own shallow profession. "Also, he didn't really know who else to call."
Carney called reports that Al Sharpton allegedly stole White House silverware during his visit "likely a simple misunderstanding - I'm sure he intends to return it," he said.
