Obama Resorts to Air Guitar

Washington, D.C.--Having run out of options to reenergize his presidency, President Obama used a televised address last night to play air guitar.

White House advisers told the president he needed to simplify his message to a few wild windmill maneuvers and a rockin' heavy metal stance, which they hoped could better further his agenda than alternative communications strategies.

"We decided it was best to let Obama be Obama," said a White House spokesperson. "And that's just what happened last night: the president struck a phony pose, engaged in some theatrics, and pumped his arms in celebration."
