Memo to Acme Products

Subject: The Obama market
I see that you've okayed my idea for your new line of exploding cigar wrappers for the Obama market, now that Wile E. Coyote has joined the Obama campaign:
- "The private sector is doing just fine."
- "You didn't build that"
- "We tried our plan - and it worked."
I anticipate enormous sales.
Those three departures from the script have the Wile E Coyote Obama ("Sheer Genius!") Strategery Team so off guard they keep flailing and sinking into the quicksand even deeper.
The one thing they hoped for was to play "look, squirrel!" with the media's help to distract voters from the horrific economy and Obama's management of it. Instead, they cannot stop focusing attention on it.
