A Breath of Cool Air

In today's prime-time press conference, reporters hurled many questions at president Obama, including--according to msnbc.com:

— Afghanistan: He said it was too early to give a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country.

— Iran: He is "looking for openings" in the coming months to start face-to-face talks.

— Bank bailout: He was not sure if the government would need more than the remaining $350 billion of bank bailout funds to restore the ailing U.S. financial system. He said his first task would be making sure those funds were spent wisely and with transparency.

— Alex Rodriguez: Obama described the baseball star's admission that he used a banned substance "depressing news on top of what’s been a flurry of depressing items when it comes to major league baseball."

All I can say is thank God. Obama has expressed his views on A-Rod.

Tonight I will sleep like a baby, but tomorrow Obama must speak to the inexplicable fame of David Archuleta.

  1. I want to see the c-span coverage of the press corps after the conference.
    Really? You asked Obama about A-rod? Really?
    That's when I realized they don't just let reporters in there, they let reporters with Down Syndrome in there.

    It made me laugh so hard that urine poured out of my nose...

  3. Okay, I think I can explain Archuleta: He's famous 'cause he's so darn cute!...no, that's just not true, he's goofy-looking. Kids like that get beat up and laughed at by girls. Okay, maybe because he's such a better singer than anyone else out there...dammit, no again! Sorry, I guess Congress will have to pass a bill declaring his mandatory popularity, along with money for condoms, frisbee parks, and 530 other pork projects.
