Baracracy: Kinder gentler cuter. (Barack Obama: Take heart, charming and attractive Americans- your nightmare is over!!!) President-elect Barack Obama promises a new era of charisma and physical attractiveness. Obama selects cabinet secretaries who reflect America's rich diversity of cuteness. (Barack Obama: From hot blondes to pixie hipster chicks to long-haired bikers, mine is a cabinet that looks like America should look.) His first 100 days features "war on uglyism" legislation. (Woman: Nice Prada suit, Pal- but your ear hairs are outta control!) At a Denny's somewhere in Flyover country. However, a nascent resistance starts to take shape... (Man: I'm proud I'm not pretty!) (Woman 2: Testify brother!) (Woman 3: Death to the cutesy-poos!) Next: The bland and the boring strike back!
