It's hard to believe: The greatest president ever, Barack Obama, actually made a mistake.

Now, this was not an error in judgment; it was what you'd call a "gaffe." And as you know, a gaffe is only worth reporting if it's done by a Republican or an old white guy.

Sorry, same thing.

It happened during a news conference in France, when the Messiah responded to a reporter from a place called Austria. In his answer, Obama said, "There's a lot of — I don't know what the term is in Austrian — wheeling and dealing...."

Now, I'm not going to make fun of Obama for thinking Austrian is a language, because, frankly, if someone asked me what's spoken in Austria, I wouldn't know. I mean, since when did kangaroos learn to talk?

But let's at least admit that, if President Bush had said this, it would be everywhere. But when it's President Obama, not so much. That's because, as much as the media loves Obama, they're more terrified of his fans. Face it, no one in mainstream media is ready to hold Obama's feet to the fire, because they fear the pitchforks.

Yes, pitchforks. You remember those. Obama said his administration is what separated bankers from "the pitchforks." And given his blinding star power and a mass of adoring fans less interested in the message than the awesomeness of the messenger, I would not take that threat lightly.

That's why I'm moving to Austria. What can I say? I'm just a huge fan of AC/DC.

And if you disagree with me, then you sir are worse than Hitler.
