An amusing article from The Spoof, a kind of member community authored version of The Onion:
During debate John McCain grills Barack Obama about his ties to David Archuleta
Written by Francine Fishpaw
Hofstra University, Long Island, NY – In a surprising move John McCain veered from the questioning about Barack Obama’s ties to unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and ACORN.
Barack Obama’s face looked unmoved when McCain questioned Obama about his ties to Bill Ayers or about how Obama first launched his political career in the Chicago home of domestic terrorists Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn. Obama put his hand over his mouth and yawned with boredom. Obama then rolled his eyes when McCain and moderator CBS’ Bob Schieffer peppered Obama with questions about his association and connection with Ayers.
When McCain brought up Obama’s ties to ACORN, the radical group that is helping the Democratic hopeful register thousands of votes in swing states, many of them fraudulently, Obama was unfazed, shook his head, and said “More politics of distraction”.
McCain then brought up Obama’s conversation with Joe the Plumber, the man who Obama told that when he is elected he would raise taxes and “spread the wealth around” to those who didn’t make enough money. Obama quickly said with a smile “John, you are being erratic” and looked unfazed.
Then to the surprise of this reporter and of everyone sitting in the audience John McCain rose from his chair and got five inches away from Barack Obama’s face and said “It seems you left your ipod in the ready room when we were waiting”. McCain held up Obama’s ipod and said “Is it true you have David Archuleta’s Crush on your ipod’s most played list, Mr. Obama, and in front of millions of viewers do you deny it, do you”?
Suddenly in front of millions and millions of TV viewers Barack Obama’s eyes widen with uncertainty. He started to sweat, stutter, and shake and with lips quivering, Obama suddenly blurted out “Yes! Yes! It is true! I love Crush! I have no shame. Yes, my daughters turned me on to Crush and now I am hooked. Sure Archuleta came in second to David Cook on American Idol, but I-I-I just can’t stop listening to it! It’s like crack…I mean, I have it on repeat. You just have to listen to the lyrics…just listen to the words. The song just speaks to me. Have you seen the video…have you!?” Suddenly Obama got angry and pounded the debate desk and shouted “I don’t care, damn it…I just don’t care! Crush just touch me in spots I never knew I had!”
Obama suddenly put his head down on the desk, hiding his face and started sobbing uncontrollably, and McCain turned to the audience and said “I rest my case”.
