A Great Leap Forward

As fringe communist thugs Chavez and Castro joke that if they are not careful, they'll end up to the right of Obama, American media continue to report that President Barack Obama is governing from the middle. Many are left to wonder "the middle of what?"

White House spokesman Rahm Emanuel addressed those questions today when he announced that the President has positioned himself on the ideological spectrum somewhere between Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong. Emanuel assured reporters that "You will find Obama's Five Year Plan to be a Great Leap Forward."

Emanuel rebuffed assertions that Stalin and Mao were poor models for an American president by pointing out that Mao remains very popular in China, where criticizing him is punishable by death.

The administration is still deliberating on what Obama's title will be when he has completed remaking America, but they have narrowed the options to "Komrade Obama" and "Chairman Obama."
