President Obama apparently made a special Olympics joke about his bowling on Leno tonight (not that I would know, because obviously, I was sleeping).
My proposed solution is to let the Special Olympics team come to the White House and kick the crap out of him in bowling. Because gosh darn it, if the President is going to go about trumpeting his superior bowling score compared to mine, someone should put him in his place.
It is not wise or politically correct to make fun of Special Olympians, no matter how many times you see me do it. Batten down the hatches and prepare for the shitstorm of outrage today, kids. It may take the collective focus off AIG for a while: we do like a good self righteous outrage for our Friday morning constitutional, no?
Honestly? Kids? Don't act so surprised. If your Crim professor can't make it through the lecutre without saying something offensive about women, vegetarians, gays, or puppies, do you expect a president to make it through his daily life without doing it? Polticians saying something dumb/offensive/nonsensical is just part of the inevitable, and we act shocked when they act, well....human. Humans are kind of prone to attacks of the dumbs sometimes. Haven't you noticed?
The Special Olympians are going to get an extra special apology for this one, because dude: not making fun of special olympians should be something they teach you in President kingergarden. Don't let your guard down just to make friends, Barry!
Thank goodness I don't have to go through that rigamarole everytime I offend someone. I haven't the time.
Politicians: don't let them out of the house without a handler. It's just a mercy we don't follow Joe Biden around too closely. In the meantime, some political commentator is going apoplectic, saying equally outrageous/offensive/moronic things: we tolerate that because they're not elected, I suppose.
