Presidential Self-Adulation Hits New High


This just in from the Obama White House: Good news on the polling front. Even though the president’s job approval ratings have plunged into negative territory in every other poll, his score on the all-important PSA Index continues to rise. The president’s rating on this index (nothing to do with the prostate) has now reached an astonishing 97% – up from 87% in late 2009, and is now at its highest level ever, according to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

The PSA Index is the official measure of Presidential Self-Approval. It first came into existence in December of 2009, when the president appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and awarded himself a B-Plus for his first year in office. To be strictly accurate, Mr. Obama provisionally awarded himself an A-Minus. He said that the slightly higher grade would be justified if, as he expected, he secured passage of his omnibus health care/income redistribution bill in early 2010. And of course he did.

So let’s boost the president’s PSA score for year one from the high 80s to the low 90s. Give the man a pat on the back (or stand aside as he does so himself).
