Smartass in Chief

Is it just me, or shouldn't we all (well, those of us who are American citizens, anyway) be able to expect our President to be respectful and courteous to us when we ask him a question or express concerns about his leadership? Wouldn't you think it should go without saying that he not belittle an American for voicing an opinion, or even just refrain from being an ass while someone else is talking? You'd think so, right? Well, apparently our President doesn't agree:

First of all, I'm very surprised this guy made it past Bush's gang of censor-thugs, let alone was allowed to speak his mind directly to the President. Am I the only one disgusted by the way our "President" handled this? Am I the only one who thinks this man has no business running a hot dog stand, let alone the most powerful, empirialistic government on the planet? When I watch this I am reminded of all the moronic jocks in high school and college who were so stupid and incapable of answering a questions intelligently that they resorted to mocking the other guy in order to cover up the fact that they're a complete idiot.

I just can't believe people actually voted for this moron...TWICE!

Anyway, on a lighter note, there have been some updates to the Angry Alien archives. In case you've never heard of Angry Alien, these are the folks responsible for the 30-second Bunny Theater. They take classic movies and tell the entire story in 30 seconds, all re-enacted by bunnies. Here's a good example of what I'm talking about. If you like that one, there are plenty more to see on their homepage. If you don't want to sit and watch all of the episodes, however, I would just watch their best one: The Exorcist in 30 Seconds (and re-enacted by bunnies).

If those fail to snap your socks, you could always visit Kenya.

And just because I'm feeling a little link-happy this evening, here's a special one for my sister.

Hey RR,

I'm no big fan of the president but I saw the exchange and have no idea what your beef is. Bush stood up for him and said he had every right to speak.

Yes, Bush disagreed with him but so what?

Illuminate me.

First of all, thanks for checking out my blog. It's always nice to have a diverse audience reading it.

As for my beef with Bush, it primarily has to do with his first little snide remark, "So I'm not your favorite guy. Go on..."

It's THAT type of sarcasm and mockery that I've got the issue with. Bush knows the guy has legitimate concerns, yet he chooses to act the "class clown" and try to make light of both the gentleman making the comment as well as his comment rather than listen respectfully and acknowledge the fact that this person has every right to feel the way he does. That he decided to play the imbecile and go for the cheap laugh instead of acting like an ADULT is what pisses me off most. For crying out loud, he's the President of the United States...he should at least PRETEND he gives a crap about what Americans who disagree with him think.

Not that I have any strong feelings on the matter or anything... *rueful grin*
