The cities lit up because the people were rejoycing at the death of the “Dear Leader”: We may see the same thing in November when Obama is voted out of power.

The beauty of propaganda is that if you tell the same lie often enough some people will believe it no matter how silly. Even more importantly if the thugs who have all the guns tell the lie even people who don’t believe it will pretend belief.

And the women went unto his tomb on the third day after his death was announced. A beautiful spirit was hovering above the place where he was buried and it said unto them, “Go! You can see he is not here. He has arisen! Gather the others together and let them know that that sick bastard is on the loose again. If you see him, shoot his sorry 4$$!”
