In case you missed it over the weekend, this was an actual news story.
Michelle Obama was looking for help from more than just House Republicans so her husband could make it to Hawaii in time for Christmas.
“We were all praying and praying, and asking Santa, and the tooth fairy, and every fairy they could think of,” the first lady said Saturday. She said their children prayed as well that the president “would be able to be with us.”
President Barack Obama eventually made it to Hawaii, about a week late, and only after Congress resolved its stalemate over extending expiring payroll tax cuts.
I prayed to Santa and the tooth fairy asking for a new president.
