That’s the only thing that could make this story better; gassy, oily discharge.

The presidential election is far from over, but you can’t deny that Obama has done some things most definitely right thus far. Of course, one of the most advantageous aspects of his campaign is having a core message that is essentially in tune with the electorate: change.

With President Bush reaching for the stars (or, more accurately, the center of the Earth) as far as his disapproval ratings are concerned, this year’s election is all about change. Changing away from the governing stylings of one George W. Bush.

It’s working… Working so well that the GOP just had to get themselves some of that change. Unfortunately, they seem to have kind of botched the whole thing.

The new slogan is “Change you deserve,” an obvious play on Obama’s “Change we can believe in” slogan. The only problem is that someone has already taken that slogan.

What the GOP doesn’t seem to realize, because they are idiots, is that “the change you deserve” is the registered advertising slogan of Effexor XR, a drug that many of you might have started taking as a result of all the…you know — terrorism. (Hat tip to Bluestem for catching this gem.)

Effexor, also known as Venlafaxine, is approved for the treatment “of depression, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder in adults.” Its common side effects are very much in keeping with the world the House Republicans have striven to build: nausea, apathy, constipation, fatigue, vertigo, sexual dysfunction, sweating, memory loss, and – and I swear I am not making this up – “electric shock-like sensations also called ‘brain zaps.'”

Well played, folks, very well played.
