If you had taken the time to search the rest of the site it would have been evident.

The real whitehouse page is www.whitehouse.gov.
This site is a spoof... a good one with news and stuff... but a spoof nonetheless.

It's from whitehouse.org, not whitehouse.gov.

That said, it's only funny because it's not too far removed from our shared reality.

www.whitehouse.org is a well-known spoof site, kind of a mixture of SmirkingChimp.com and The Onion.

(does anyone here actually READ web sites / references, before they spaz a freakposting about it on to PDX Indymedia's already-overloaded news wire?)
