The President and I are on the same page.

Catchy headline, ain't it?

Ok, read the article here.

Basically, an ABC anchor overheard Mr. President call Kanye the "J" word, completely off-the-record, then of course -- like ALL celebrities and those in the media -- felt the need to twitter it ASAP.

Here's the tweet:
"Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a 'jackass' for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential." (Terry Moran)

I've got some comments.

1. The sky is blue. Fire is hot. And Kanye West is a jackass. We all know this.

2. I'm conflicted. I like having a president who's semi-aware of what's going on around him in the 'ole popular culture. And, I like a president who can call them like he sees them.

3. Then again, I like a president who can hold his tongue. (Theoretically, he was holding his tongue, though. Since his comment was off-the-record. But when you're the president, is what you say EVER off-the-record?)

4. Twitter is so annoying. That ABC fella is a tattle-tale. Shall I tweet that? And who in the world follows Terry Moran? Get a life.

Moreover (I just wanted to use that word) - I think this whole thing is silly. Kanye bullied Taylor because he's a child. Taylor handled it well, ironically - since she actually is a child.

Let's move on to more pressing topics - like I don't know, health care reform and why grown men are still wearing skinny jeans.


  1. This is completely unrelated to this post, BUT I took/stole your question deal from an earlier post because I liked it so much! BUT, I did give you credit!

  2. Forget the War, or a Recession, or global warming....Twitter will be the end of the world as we know it.

    Kanye sucks.

  3. I hear what you are saying but he's still a jackass. :)

  4. Yes to everything. I love that Obama is not afraid to call a Jackass a Jackass.

    PEOPLE like Kayne West in general annoy me. Just because you have money doesn't mean you have class. Just because you are famous doesn't mean you can just do whatever you want.
