Last night’s press conference was a real bummer, and boiled down to two essential questions: number one, why can’t Obama be more bipartisan by removing all spending from the stimulus bill forever, and number two, how will we know if his financial rescue plan is working or not? But a third important question surfaced toward the end of the press conference, and it obliterated all questions before it like a neutron bomb blots out LIFE. The question was this: Does Barack Obama disapprove of steroids?
A savvier political figure than our dope of a new president would have crowed, “Yes I lurv performance-enhancing drugs,” so as to be contrarian! But instead Obama mumbled the old, “I’m concerned about the message it sends to our kids,” blah blah blah.
Also, finally — seriously, what the hell. This Washington Post journalist, Michael Fletcher, who asked this terrible question. He works for one of the biggest news outlets in the country and attends the president’s first prime time press conference EVER, about the economy, and this is the question he asks? He probably had a couple prepared that other people ended up asking before him, but holy jesus shit. This is the sort of question you ask when you have been caught masturbating in class. F MINUS.
