Obama Buries Washington Snow

Original Source article:

You know things are bad when your president thinks your capital is full of chickens because of some ice.

"Can I make a comment that is unrelated to the economy very quickly and it has to do with Washington?" President Barrack Obama told reporters prior to a White House meeting with business leaders early Wednesday morning.

"My children's school was canceled today. Because of what? Some ice?"

"Yessir, Mr. President," replied a swave reported, "Because of some ice."

Apparently, President Obama was surprised by the fact that a few centimeters of snow and a thin layer of ice that was all but melted away before nine o'clock was enough for some schools to either open later or close for the day. Obama, being a man from Chicago and used to real winter weather, suggests that Washington can't handle three centimeters of snow and that a bit of flinty Chicago toughness is needed.

Congratulations, Toronto. You are no longer the wussiest city in winter.

Now, to be fair, it can be argued that Washington doesn't have the proper means to deal with this "extreme" weather. Mind you, they could have pumped more funds into better snow equipment, but then you'd be taking away from funding for the War on Terror... or is it the War on Christmas?

Oh who cares?
