Obama Adjusts to Life as Ordinary Politician

Washington, D.C.--After being elevated to a god-like status during the presidential campaign, President Obama took a series of inconsistent and implausible policy positions that led to a dramatically steep decline in his popularity as he lost the trust of independent voters.

Administration officials downplayed recent events, saying “This is not an unprecedented situation.” They pointed to other instances in which entities were immortal but later became mortal, “like in Walt Disney’s version of Hercules.”

Asked if Obama’s opinion of himself had deflated at all now that he was ranked less like a god and more like something ordinary, one Administration official said “Perhaps.” Then he added “But as we’re often reminded, pretty much the same thing happened with Jesus.”
