My feelings toward our President have tempered over the years to the point where I don't actively dislike the man (however much I disagree with his decisions), and sometimes when I'm feeling charitable, I empathize with him. But every now and again I come across something (usually video) that makes me irate for no real identifiable reason. I found this video via Sullivan who got it from Wonkette who found it on YouTube, and there's plenty wrong with what I see here. He dodges the question, while remarking about dodging the question. He gives that pat "I delegate" remark, which is itself a dodge. He can't take a serious question seriously. He sounds like a moron when he giggles like that, and I'm sure, much more.

Mark said it reminded him of Rickey Gervais's David Brent from "The Office". I agree with that, but there's something else here that bothers me... I'm just at a loss to describe/pinpoint it. What do you think?


worst commercial ever

Okay, maybe it’s not the worst ever, but since we’re in the process of buying a house it seems like it. If I was getting ganged up on like that guy in the commercial I would rip that phone off the wall and shout “peddle your wares somewhere else real estate harpy!” whether the phone was still plugged in or not. As it stands now I still want to scream “what are you doing you pussy? All the specialness in the world doesn’t pay your property taxes!” to that poor simpering bastard of a husband.
