So roughly eight years ago, as President Bush was getting ready to golf, reporters peppered him with questions about suicide bombings in Israel.

Holding his driver, the president said, "There are a few killers who want to stop the peace process, and we must not let them. I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers."

Then he said, without missing a beat: "Thank you. Now watch this drive."

What an idiot, right?

Not so much, I think.

See, this memory springs to mind after hearing about our current president's outing at Nancy's, a waterfront restaurant in Oaks Bluff, Massachusetts. As President Obama walked toward the entrance, a few reporters tried to ask him about Iraq. Check it out:




OBAMA: How are you?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: — will the war in Iraq —

OBAMA: We're buying shrimp, guys.


"We're buying shrimp guys… C'mon."

And there you have it: One president who can play golf and talk terror, and one who needs his shrimp.

Look I get the point; it's a vacation, and shrimp is delicious. But it can't be that hard to answer a simple question, especially one that's kinda important. I mean, if that dim bulb George Bush could do it, I think Obama could, too.

Granted, some say buying shrimp is harder than lining up a decent drive. Shrimp are small, slippery and they have those annoying shells on their tails. Frankly, I find them disgusting, and if I had my way, I'd imprison all of them in tiny shrimp jails. You could say I am "shrimpaphobic," and you'd be right.

Anyway, as Obama delicately sucks the meat out of a tiny crustacean, Vladimir Putin harpoons a whale with a crossbow. I know that says something about something. I don't know.

And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophobe who stole my underpants last night.
