This picture pretty much sums up the Obama presidency. No one who aspires to the job “leader of the free world” can be seen sipping a cocktail of this sort. Bourbon or Scotch neat, yes. Vodka? Better than a mixed drink but engendering a certain amount of suspicion. A whipped cream “Bushwhacker” in a plastic cup with a Maraschino cherry on top? With a straw?! Never!
Update: Blogger friend Morgan observes that Obama “is just a whisker away from bowing to the damn thing. Better reconvene that panel again. You know, the one that’s supposed to advise him on which ass to kick.”
Because nothing says kick ass like a man sipping a Mardi Gras drink.
