From The Onion...

Given that the new year marks the beginning of what I fully expect to be a fun time hereabouts vis-a-vis coverage of the upcoming election, and given the opening of festivities with last night's Iowa Caucuses, this one seemed the perfect way with which to inaugurate this year's posting activities:
Obama Openly Asks Nation Why On Earth He Would Want To Serve For Another Term
From the piece:
"My fellow Americans, I come to you today to ask, why?" Obama said to 1,200 people gathered inside a gymnasium at Taylor Allderdice High School. "Why can't our congressional leaders work together to create jobs? Why can't Wall Street ever be held accountable? And most important, why on God's green earth would I voluntarily subject myself to this nonsense for another four years?"  
"I'm dead serious," the president continued, saying that any reasonable person would have walked away the moment the Senate minority leader announced his main priority—above creating jobs and improving American health care—was to make Obama a one-term president. "I'm asking if anybody out there can come up with even one reason why I'd want to endure this unmitigated shit show for another minute, let alone through 2016. What's in it for me, ex­actly? Can anyone answer that? Anyone at all?"
