WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) -- In what some are calling a gross infraction against the White House's code of ethics, President Barack Obama admitted today that he made several donations to Democratic candidates during the 2010 midterm campaign.
"In retrospect, I should have been more upfront about these donations," a chastened Mr. Obama told reporters today. "I don't want to do anything that makes the White House appear to be biased towards one party over another."

"If I had known that Obama was biased towards the Democrats, I never would have put him on our network so much," he said. "Like most Americans, I feel pretty sucker-punched by this."
Mr. Griffin also unveiled MSNBC's new slogan, "Lean Forward, So We Can Kick Your Ass Out the Door." Continue reading here.
