Many of us recall The Onion’s startlingly prescient election-day headline: Bush or Gore: A New Era Dawns.
And now we have yesterdays headline: Clinton Vaguely Disappointed By Lack Of Assassination Attempts.

Britney Spears Loses Voice In Tragic Statutory Rape Incident
After Bumping Head On Oval Office Desk While Reaching For His Favorite Highlighter, President Bush Develops Eidetic Memory And Perfect Speech
