October Surprises

Speculation is rampant that President Obama’s Chicago campaign team is about to unleash an October surprise. A source on background has revealed these disquieting schemes already in progress, as well as some of the president’s secret plans for his second term:

In a desperate attempt to win Florida, the campaign will enlist frogmen to move Osama bin Laden’s corpse to Sea World.

 If the president is reelected, he will exact revenge on his former challenger by replacing the Mormon Taberna…

    I’m worn out from that . Whew ! Lots of material there.

    Loved the Bill Moyers ,Belafonte, and Betty White imagery.

    Just the perfect mixture of ageism and racism to start the day.

    Just kidding, it’s not ageist to make fun of any of those fools.

    Thanks.

    Did you get Maya Angelou’s email the other day ?

    I laughed hard last night when I read this.  I’m glad the overlords stuck it up front.  Good stuff.

    Great stuff…even as some of the optics are a tad disturbing. Keep up the good work!

    In my fondest dreams and fantasies, I write that well, too.  Wonderful!

    This talent shouldn’t. Do a Google search on Mr. Siller’s name.

    On election eve, President Obama will deliver a prime-time address to the nation and conclude by French-kissing Tipper Gore.

    Actually to placate his gay supporters I believe Obama will french kiss Al Gore

     If the president is reelected, he will exact revenge on his former challenger by replacing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir with the Muslim Barbershop Quartet.

    This is going to leave a lot of extra seats at the Conference Center.  And I suppose the broadcast will move to Friday.

    Hilarious!!

    No wonder I thought I heard faint rim shots from Doc Severinsen while I read it!

    Bill Whittle over at PJTV is saying that Alred October Surprise is that Mitt Romney, as a Mormon missionary, persuaded a number of women not to have abortions.

    That’ll sink him, all right.

    I really, REALLY like this one:

    “A rumor will be spread that a President Romney would not only defund PBS — he would also strap to the roof of the presidential limo a wooden crate housing Bill Moyers.”

    One more thing for Al and Tipper to fight over.  I bet they’d both like it.

    “Raymond Siller is a four-time Emmy nominated television writer and a political consultant. He was Johnny Carson’s long-time head writer.”

    I thought I remembered that style.

    Finally! I’ve been wanting to share this one with non-Ricochet folks. Good job.

    Oh, Ray, I just love this!

    Bob Hope, Johnny Carson–all prologue.  Now that you’re here with us at Ricochet, your real life can begin.

    The hatred you people display is disturbing.

    Johnny Carson!  Wasn’t he the very best?  I am glad Raymond Siller is such a part of our culture!  Cheers!

    October surprise:  Obamacare will pay for trips to China for clients who seek alternative medicine.

    That’s perturbing to you .  Aged and colored through a steeping time measured in years, the finely burnished glow of humor knows no bounds ,political correctness, or historical reassessments of victimhood . So get used to it man ! And you get the next round.
