Saturday morning I came across that infamous photo of Tony Hawk skateboarding down the White House corridors and instantly I turned from my normal, happy-go-lucky self into a raging old coot — waving my garden hose at kids pulling wheelies on my front lawn.
Now, am I right to be pissed that some jackass is skateboarding through the White House while all this Iranian crap is going down?
I mean, have we as a nation finally succumbed to the idiocy of the MTV/Mountain Dew/"Road Rules," backward hat and baggy short culture? Did I miss something or is the White House the setting for the next "Real World"? Where are the wallet chains? Is Hot Topic handling our foreign policy?
President Obama should be grounded for at least a week for letting Tony Hawk play in our house. Where in hell are the adults?
Look: Tony Hawk is in his mid-forties. He's wildly successful and a very nice guy. But he's a grown man and he skateboards.... in the White House.
Could you imagine anyone who lived during World War II treating a man who skateboards with anything less than disdain?
While people risk their lives for the glimmer of freedom, Tony Hawk is in the White House tweeting about Frosted Flakes.
Someone please dig up Reagan. I'd take a dead leader with balls over a living camp counselor who wants all the cool kids to like him.
And if you disagree with me, then you sir are worse than Hitler.
