Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, attempting to take advantage of the transitional period between the American elections Barack Obama’s actual inauguration in January of 2009 has announced the deployment of a short-range Iskander missile system to counter the United States plans for a European missile defense system.
In his annual state-of-the-nation address, President Medvedev issued what has been called a “bright, clear warning” to President-elect Obama by a member of the German Council on Foreign Relations, that the Russian President and his mentor, Vladimir Putin, were eager to test the new American leader’s mettle. The strategy seems to be to piss outgoing President George W. Bush off enough to start World War III just before passing the reins of power to Mr. Obama, and then see what happens.
Unnamed White House Transition Facilitator Wegman (Pudgy) Waterhouse, (you didn’t think I was gonna drop him that easy, did you?) speaking on the condition of anonymity said, “You know, it almost worked, too. When he heard about the missile thing, Georgie, who was watching a Power Rangers DVD at the time, nearly leaped over the desk to get to what he calls the ‘Bat Phone’, trying to order an air strike against the Kremlin. Luckily, there were two Secret Service agents in the room, along with a guy from the Obama team who was measuring the drapes in the Oval Office, who were able to wrestle him back into his La-z-boy and hog tie him with their belts.”
When asked how President Bush reacted to the news of an Obama win, Waterhouse, speaking on the condition that he’d do anything to worm his way into the Obama Administration rather than try to find a new job in this economy said, “You know, he’s doing pretty good. After all, he hates John (McCain) just as much as hates Obama, so he had no horse in this race. Anyway, I get the feeling he doesn’t actually believe he’s leaving in January- he keeps scribbling little plans and scenarios on napkins and takeout menus, trying to figure out a way to stay in power. We let him do it; it’s easier than trying to keep him medicated all the time.”
