DATELINE--Washington D.C.--In a surprise move, President Obama named Swedish sound engineer and prolific song writer Dan Swano 'Secretary of Dreaminess' yesterday, as a shocked Dag Swano looked on. As a consequence of this stunning announcement, Swano must spend part of his day shirtless, and will trade his car for a white horse with a flowing mane. Also he must spend one hour each chopping wood in the early morning sun while wearing tight jeans. "He's just so great." Obama said, "especially after meeting him! He said he likes the same things I do too!" In congress, Vice President Biden was happy to hear the news, "I glad he finally met him. I was getting sick of Barack always talking about him, like 'did you know Dan Swano played drums on Tonight's Decision? OMG!'" Biden continued, "the 2009 budget had to be rewritten several times because the president kept writing 'B.O. + D. S.' in a heart on every page, and originally signed it into law as 'Barack Swano.'" When President Obama replaced the Lansdowne portrait of George Washington with a collage he made from Kerrang and Terrorizer clippings of the the tall Swede, I knew [Swano] was a shoo-in get a seat on the cabinet, said Speaker of the House Pelosi, a month ago he replaced Jefferson's portrait with a picture he found on the web of then-Secretary of Energy nominee Steven Chu holding his puppy. Rumor of Swano's appointment began to swirl in the White House press room just hours after First Lady Michelle Obama was heard joking about the President's early morning shower rendition of "Nightfall Overture". Secretary of Dreaminess was last held during the Clinton administration by Robert Reich.
