WASHINGTON, DC — Barack Obama is setting out to go where no candidate has gone before. Next week he will top his international goodwill tour with a visit to the constellations of the Milky Way.
“It’s no different than the exploratory trips Captain Kirk took when he was running for High Commander of the Intergalactic League,” said a campaign spokeman.
While some question Obama’s motives, sources close to the candidate divulged that he’s just trying to highlight his human-to-alien diplomatic prowess. Blastoff will be broadcast live on all major news networks and Obama’s daughters will blog about their father’s experience for Capitol Hillz Kidz.
