The economy is blowing itself to hell as fast as everyone can arrange it. The government agencies that are supposed to be ameliorating the problems are blaming each other, politicians are making death threats against corporate bonus recipients using money THEY voted to give them, and the "most brilliant administration ever" is showing itself to be functionally retarded.
Now is a perfect chance for Barack Obama to man up, grow a pair of balls, take the helm of his administration, and fix the unforced errors that come out of 1600 Pennsylvania every day.
Instead he is on Leno tonight. He's wasting time on empty publicity, filling out his NCAA bracket picks while his Treasury Department is still unstaffed save Geithner.
Mr. No Talent Ass Clown even dicked up his Leno appearance tonight, insulting the handicapped:
Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he's gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.
He bowled a 129, the president said.
"That's very good, Mr. President," Leno said sarcastically.
It's "like the Special Olympics or something," the president said.
When asked about the remark, the White House had no comment.
I'm getting tired of finding reasons to kick this guy around. It's a fucking disgrace! He's pointing the ship of state at the rocks and has no bloody clue what the line of breakers ahead means. No wonder the rest of the world perceives us as weak now when this is the sort of clown we elevate to elected office!
AFTERTHOUGHT: Any bets on whether the bowling questions get edited out of the Tonight Show at airtime?
Afterthought the Second: Spotted at Perfunction: "Obama Throws Self Under the Short Bus."
