That's no monument...that's a joint.
As you may have heard, Tuesday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day for the Democratic Party across the nation, with the GOP winning an overwhelming victory in virtually every toss-up race (except the one moderate Tea Partier, carpetbagger Scott Brown, of course). Considering how miserable the GOP has managed to make the past 4 years for Obama just by controlling the House, one can imagine that the President is not exactly looking forward to his remaining time with the Legislative Branch now that it's under the leadership of Messrs. McConnell and Boehner. ON THE OTHER HAND, D.C. legalized weed! Since you're getting nothing done anyway, Mr. President, Stephen Colbert has some excellent advice: kick back and relax with a stiff spliff.
