This has been a bumper week for absurd, Orwellian news.

In an article that looks like it was ripped from KCNA (North Korea's online "news" outlet), CNN is reporting that basically every single American went shopping on Black Friday:

WOW, CNN!  We must be up to our necks in Choco-rations and saccharine tablets!

It wasn't very long ago that Obama supporters were being mocked as followers of a messiah of their own making.  Apparently Karl Marx was right - history repeats itself; first as a tragedy, then as a farce.  Actor/comedienne Jamie Foxx has unblushingly "given honor to our Lord and Savior, Barack Obama" at the BET awards.  I kid you not:

A statement like that perhaps lends some context to a painting like THIS:

Yes, dear Straightdopes listener, that is a painting of Obama as a crucified Christ entitled "Truth."  It's reminiscent of Nazi Germany, where Christmas carols had words changed to substitute Hitler for the Baby Jesus.

But NO.... NO.... IT COULD NEVER HAPPEN HERE!

STRAIGHTDOPES - IT'S DOUBLE PLUS GOOD!
