I wasn’t invited

Normally I’m the last to complain about someone squandering money on a party, but in these troubled economic times why is His Presidency The Barry Obongo spending $150 million on inaugural festivities?

Consider the alternatives: $150 million buys the entire population of Uganda a $5 foot long from Subway, it buys a custom perch for each of China’s 34,000 human-bird hybrids, or it buys a Boeing 767 for every single one of America’s openly Mustiphino congressmen.

  1. Or gets the Zambian Space Program up and running again.

    I forget where, but I heard it seriously argued that the festivities are worth the price because the country needs its spirits lifted in these times. The Zambian Space Program would lift my spirit more.
