WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—President Barack Obama spent several hours on Monday in a closed-door Oval Office meeting seeking advice on how to establish a monarchy, Fox News reports.
According to Fox, the President peppered his Oval Office guest with detailed questions about the mechanics of setting up a monarchy and was curious about the perks and powers that go along with it.
Obama’s guest advised him that establishing a monarchy would probably require rewriting or even replacing the Constitution, an option that Obama reportedly said would be “difficult, but doable.”
Introducing a note of caution, the guest urged the President to alter the Constitution so that it vested the monarch with genuine power, adding, “You don’t want to wind up being a figurehead who just goes around visiting foreign dignitaries and so forth.”
According to the Fox report, the President came away “intrigued” by the meeting and said he would explore the idea further next week when Congress is on vacation.

Cheney Blasts Terror Report for Lack of Pictures
A torture report seems like Cheney porn.
Bush blasted the CIA torture report without reading it, so I guess he’s still strongly pro-torture and anti-reading.
The degree to which Dick Cheney constantly draws attention to himself makes me wonder if he doesn’t realize he’s a war criminal.
