This car's for you!

I see that I wasn't the only one disturbed to see Pres. Obama on TV assuring us that our car warranty will be safe like a used car salesman:

What America really needs in these tough times is a new Used Car Dealer-in-Chief!

And that's just what we got from the Grand Foyer of the White House yesterday as Obama explained all the great new features of owning the world's second-largest automaker.

"Just in case there's still nagging doubts," Obama said, as if to a skeptical buyer.

"Let me say it as plainly as I can: If you buy a car from Chrysler or General Motors, you will be able to get your car serviced and repaired, just like always."

All that was missing was the sharkskin suit, giant pinky ring and slicked-back 'do.

"Your warranty will be safe," Obama promised. "In fact, it will be safer than it's ever been!

"Because, starting today, the United States government will stand behind your warranty."


But wait.

This is the same federal government that can't even switch America to digital TV?

Even Jon Stewart had a segment yesterday showing Obama as a slick oily used car salesman.

The problem here? People are fooled every day by a used car salesman.
