On Thursday it was announced that a school named after Barack Obama was being shuttered due to fiscal mismanagement and under-achievement, and the fitting Team Obama irony clickity-clacks along:

As a thank-you to its most famous customer, Amtrak is renaming the train station in Wilmington, Del. after stimulus “sheriff” Vice President Joseph R. Biden — after the project received $20 million in stimulus money, and came in $5.7 million over the initial announced budget.

Obama called him “Sheriff Joe” because he was charged with ensuring that every dollar of stimulus money was spent wisely and that projects came in on time and on budget. So naturally when that went south almost immediately, the only other option was to start doing Joe the honor of naming some of his failures after him.

    Ah, I love the smell of irony in the afternoon. Like rain on your wedding day or a free ride when you've already paid.

    Come ride the little train that is rolling down the tracks to the junction.
    (Petticoat Junction)
    Forget about your cares, it is time to relax at the junction.
    (Petticoat Junction)

    Lotsa curves, you bet. Even more when you get
    To the junction, Petticoat Junction.

    There's a little hotel called the Shady Rest at the junction.
    (Petticoat Junction)
    It is run by Kate, come and be her guest at the junction.
    (Petticaor Junction)
    And that's Uncle Joe, he's a movin' kind of slow at the junction,
    Petticoat Junction.
