A picture is worth a thousand words … it is official folks, there is a rat at the White House.

Many have suspected it for months and now its official, from the AP:
In his battle with the titans of Wall Street, President Barack Obama almost got upstaged by a rat.
But he didn’t even seem to notice. Assuming that’s what it was, scurrying in front of his podium Thursday in a sun-drenched Rose Garden.
Obama had just begun an afternoon statement to reporters lauding the end of a Senate filibuster on his financial overhaul plan when some kind of rodent — opinions differ on which — dashed out of the bushes to his right, just outside the Oval Office.
As photographers snapped away, the critter trundled straight past the gray podium with the presidential seal and made a bee-line for another set of bushes to Obama’s left.
Maybe a rat is not out of place after all in DC, as No Sheeple Here states … they are pretty common place.
The metaphors are too easy for this one. Was this rat looking for some stimulus money, maybe some free Obamacare? Or maybe, just maybe the rat was fleeing the sinking ship S.S. Obama.
