Over the weekend President Obama had arguably his best stuff yet on display at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, ripping into Republicans, Democrats, and the Village alike. The annual scolding and pearl-clutching from the right is almost as hysterical, albeit for different reasons. This year’s accidental comedy routine comes from the pen of Assrocket himself, and it delivers loads of laughs.
There has been quite a bit of news coverage of this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Don’t ask me why. The annual lovefest between Democratic politicians and Democratic journalists hasn’t generated any actual news in a long time. But this year’s event was perhaps notable because it exposed our president’s bitterness, as he approaches the end of his term. Humor is often revealing. Obama began with a joke that would be considered crude in a junior high school locker room:
After the midterm elections, my advisors asked me, “Mr. President, do you have a bucket list?” And I said, “Well, I have something that rhymes with bucket list.’” (Laughter and applause.)
Take executive action on immigration? Bucket. (Laughter.) New climate regulations? Bucket. It’s the right thing to do. (Laughter and applause.)
If I had said something like that when I was 12, my father would have whacked me. Now, we have a president so pitiful that he thinks such crudeness is appropriate humor.
Oh, how quickly we forget what actual crude humor from bitter presidents actually looks like.
Besides, when Assrocket was 12, George Wallace had just become Governor of Alabama, so if Barack Obama had said anything of the sort at the time in the state, he probably would have been lynched.
Oh wait, wasn’t he in Kenya at the time?
Ahh, but our friend grabs a shovel and digs deep for that cesspool at the bottom when it came to President Obama’s routine with Luther the Anger Translator on climate change, of course calling the president “uneducated”. and having “no idea what he is talking about.”
He then ends with this:
More stupidity. Every serious scientist says that adopting Obama’s plan of a 28% reduction in CO2 emissions would have no perceptible effect on the Earth’s temperature, even if the alarmists’ models are correct (which they aren’t). See, e.g., Dr. Judith Curry’s Congressional testimony to the effect that best case, if the bogus models were correct, Obama’s proposal would “prevent three hundredths of a degree centigrade in warming by 2100.” Obama is simply ignorant. And “snowballs in the Senate”? What is that supposed to mean? Just another gratuitous partisan insult, added on top of scientific fantasy. That’s our president!
At the Correspondents’ Dinner, Obama played the supposedly comic role of the lame duck. The end of his tenure in office can’t come too soon.
That sputtering “I found one scientist who says this so I win!” tirade has got to be pretty embarrassing for a guy so blockheaded that he was duped into thinking Harry Reid was beaten up by his brother and wrote an entire series of posts exploring how the “truth” was stifled by a compliant media.
The folks with the credibility and judgment problems really should keep their opinions to their damned selves, starting with this clown.
