Act Now And Receive A Free MRE. Operators Are Standing By!

Ok, I watched the President’s speech last night. Did anybody else cringe when he said this:

Many families were separated during the evacuation, and we are working to help you reunite. Please call 1-877-568-3317, that’s 1-877-568-3317, and we will work to bring your family back together, and pay for your travel to reach them.

You know you’ve got a bad speechwriter when he inserts bad radio commercial cliches in there. And couldn’t the leader of the free world get a more memorable phone number to use? You know, like “1-800-4BUSHIE” or something?
