I can't wait for the next round when the administration pushes their more childs-left-behind education bill and the birthers/teabaggers/crypto-fascists cry that Obama will force teachers to sodomize children in health class and burn American flags in social studies.
The most-anticipated beer of the Obama Administration is set to take place on Thursday at 6 p.m., a White House official told the Herald.
On Friday, President Obama announced the peace draft to be shared with Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. to discuss the scholar’s controversial arrest on July 16.
Hey, what problems can't be resolved over a beer...unless you're in a Tennessee bar and the guy you are trying to reconcile with is carrying a concealed .45.
So, what's on the menu?
The beer selection for Thursday’s meeting is not known. Crowley prefers Blue Moon beer. Gates likes Beck’s and Red Stripe. The president drinks Budweiser.
The most powerful man in the world likes to drink...wait for it...Budweiser!?!
Well, at least he didn't say Pabst. The dude could have any beer he wants and he's going with the classic Amerikan swill. Damn, if I was president I'd turn the Lincoln Bedroom into a tap room featuring the finest West Coast IPAs, Belgian ales and German Oktoberfest brew imaginable.
I'm not the only one who thinks Obama should be more liberal and adventurous in the beer department. Here's a completely unscientific poll by NPR listeners. The verdict is near unanimous.
The president could always use this opportunity to solve both America' racial tensions and the standoff with North Korea by selecting Pyongyang's latest brew. There's nothing wrong with stress relief...
Much ado in the Blargosphere about this today. There are a lot of theories floating around as to the story behind this picture.
I called newly minted Democrat, and former Warren Commission staffer, Arlen Specter's office for a statement. Specter offers the most compelling explanation I have seen.
The Single Look Theory:
French President Nicolas Sarkozy looks at something,
Concensus seems coagulating that Obama's .06% less shittiness than McCain vis a vis the crisis in Iran has saved us all from nuclear
annihilation, which is just as stoopid a meme as right-wingers saying
pwoggles wanna pweemptively suwwender and embwace shawia law (though,
nuclear annihilation is .06% more likely, my faith teaches me).
I love me some empire - I am invested, complicit, and rooting for my
continued comfortable life. I'll do what I can that the lives of brown
people on the other side of the world are .06% less shitty, I'll vote
for whores who are .06% less likely to take pride in bombing civilians, who will order the military to adjust their tables of engagement
so .06% fewer civilians die, but a man can only do so much and continue
to disc golf on weekends.
.06% less shitty! Buy into your complicity whole-heartedly, skip the Adjustable Rube Mortgage, and then address your less-shittiness.
Love the propaganda: Here's something to keep in the back of your mind anytime the president "addresses the nation," or decides to "speak directly to the people," because Dustin Hoffman as Lenny Bruce's valuable advice to wayward monogamists works for American presidents too:
So good on you, president Obama! I see what you did there. When you want people to maintain a belief in your respect for the rule of law, all you need to do is pay it some lip service, because they want to believe you.
If I've done my job here you will allow Dustin Hoffman's words, speaking as Lenny Bruce, to color everything you hear Dear Barry say.
