What To Do When Washington Gets All Wee-Weed Up?

President Obama explained during his health care pep talk for Organizing for America activists today what exactly has been dragging down his vision for Obamacare:

"There's something about August going into September where everyone in Washington gets all 'wee-weed' up," the president said.

Yes, wee-wee, the sneakiest fear-monger. Tinkle, the silent consensus-killer. There is some debate as to what the president meant, though it may have had something to do with Sarah Palin? I don't know, everyone's equally stumped:

He pointed to last August's selection of then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) to join the Republican ticket as the GOP's vice presidential nominee.

"'Obama's lost his mojo,'" the president said the media were saying after Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) campaign received a short-lived bump from palin.

"You remember all that?" Obama added.

I, for one, believe he was probably telling us yet another story about profiteering doctors. This time, urologists, who are infamous for taking excessive urine samples from patients for extra cash. That's a practice that I think we can all agree is pretty "wee-weed up."
