Perhaps you saw this latest creation from Captain Gaffe-Tastic:
Redstate has a hilarious rundown of the Chief Gaffer titled, “To Channel Michael Dukakis: I Seriously Can’t Believe We Lost to This Guy.”
I don’t know if I’ve seen a worse public speaker in my lifetime more lionized for his public speaking ability than President Barack Obama (D-IL). The homage paid to him by pundits and anchors across the country for his supposedly unique combination of intelligence and eloquence is shown almost by the day to be as misplaced as effusive praise for Vice President Joe Biden’s (D-Slave State) thoughtful, precise manner of speaking would be.
The difference is, you don’t see people tripping all over themselves to praise Biden’s wisdomousness (to use a term from “Friends), or calling for him to make more public appearances as a counter to dipping personal and proposal popularity numbers. You do — inexplicably — see that with Obama, the architect of so many gaffes just one national campaign into his career (and six months into his presidency) that he already rivals the eight years of President Bush in quotable foibles.
“Fifty-seven states”? “Good morning, Sunshine”? “Ten thousand dead – and entire town destroyed”? Give an asthmatic “a breathayzer–inhalater–er, inhaler”?
To quote Bugs Bunny, “Wotta Maroon!” It’s a damned funny article which is made all the more poignant by the fact it’s all true. Every freaky-deaking word, baby.
