President Barack Obama: Mommy, Mommy, these nasty Republicans won’t let me transform American into a Cuban-style socialist paradise!

Left-wing media: I know baby! They are just a reckless bunch of Christian racist homophobes. Shut down the government, don’t negotiate and close the Children’s Cancer Center and the World War II Memorials in Washington and Normandy. Then we will make sure the Republicans get the blame.

Obama: Great ideas! Thank you Mommy! I knew I could count on you.

Left-wing media: You’re welcome sweetie; we have your back.
