Remember Sen. George Allen? Of course you do. He was that twit running for office in Virginia who called a reporter trailing his campaign team “Macaca” and carried a football everywhere he went because, apparently, sports were “very important” to his family when he was a kid and the football might have been the only thing in the world that loved him. Like Wilson the Volleyball.
Obama is starting to be “That Guy.” Either the whole “spiking the football” thing has become a visual gag as well as a press tactic, someone is trying to make him look “manly” on camera, or this is all starting to get just a teensy bit ridiculous.
A short retrospective of Obama over the last several days – first, t the G8 summit, tossing the football down Soldier Field with all of the athletic prowess of a fifth grade girl.
Then, in his office, showing off for people he pays to be impressed with him:
And finally, in front of a mirror, making sure he’s still that handsome devil that didn’t play high school football.
I’d say its the same day, but he’s wearing different ties. And that’s not the same football.
