I blame Barack Obama

The election was inspirational. It made almost everyone in our nation hopeful for a better future. However, the worst possible thing happened: Tomorrow I have to report to jury duty.

With such terrible news, you can understand why my hope is dashed.

I blame Barack Obama... If Obama really is so awesome, why can't he get me out of jury duty? If his change is real, why can't he change the rules so that I can postpone again?

And for a moment, I believed in his change. How silly. How silly indeed.

Barack Obama hates you.

See, you are looking at it all wrong.

Show up dressed like Obama, in blackface. I guarantee you will be excused from jury duty.

I'd hate to see the poor guy that ends up with YOU on a jury of his peers...
