Good news: White House meme-generating department unscathed by sequestration

Yesterday, President Obama said he couldn’t solve sequestration by using a “Jedi mind meld.” Mockery was swift and immediate, but most importantly the whole thing helped keep some of the focus off the fact that Obama told some whoppers during the news conference. Because of that, the White House decided to keep running with the joke:

It must be comforting to those janitors who might have been troubled when the president (er, I mean a “high ranking official”) falsely said they were getting a pay cut to know there’s still enough money in the budget for the administration’s meme-du-jour Photoshop guy.

WhiteHouse.gov/JediMindMeld defaults to a sequester page where the administration that just topped $6 trillion in added debt explains how much money their plan would save or something.

As for getting the media’s help spreading the word, it’s “take the Obama talking points to work” day at the Associated Press (via Twitchy):

Also, the AP won’t be using the word “sequestration” anymore. I think they’ve decided to go with “republicuts” instead.
