Raising the political bar

Today's joke:

Barack Obama walks into a bar with a duck on his head.

Bartender looks up and says, "Say, where'd you get the Chicago-influenced secret Muslim with the angry, unpatriotic wife?"

"You ignorant, ill-informed, right-wing alcohol pusher," Obama replies. "This is Not a Chicago-influenced secret Muslim with an angry, unpatriotic wife. This is a duck."

"I was TALKING to the duck."

Did you make that up all by yourself?

All except the "alcohol pusher" part. I originally wrote "drink slinger," but the duck, a fussy literalist, thought it was too oblique and urged me to change it.

Making fun of the Cubs and White Sox again, eh?

Pretty big talk for someone from a city so humiliated by their losses that they packed up and moved to Brooklyn halfway through their first season in the National Association.
