This deal is only available for a limited time!

Obama's urgency about the stimulus package reminds me of nothing so much as a used car salesman warning you that the deal is going to slip through your fingers if you don't act immediately. With the added threat that if he doesn't get his way right now, the World as We Know It will come to an end.

Or perhaps he more closely resembles one of those television pitchmen selling a gadget that will cut your hair, trim your toenails, and put out the cat. And if you call this toll-free number right away, you get a free ginsu knife and a month's supply of Nutrisystem. Just pay shipping and handling!

But act now!

Operators are standing by. :-)

Well, if he would have the decency to throw in a Sham Wow with the stimulus, I might be all for it.

Maybe he should have gotten Billy Mays (the Oxi Clean/Mighty Putty guy) to try and sell the stim-package for him.

How could I forget the operators? Or the Sham Wow? Shame on me.
