Why did Barack insist on appearing on Jay Leno? It is within this type of relaxed pop culture environment that someone like Barack is likely to let his guard down and say something stupid. Talk shows are not the same as sitting and bullshitting in your den with close friends. Politicians want us to believe they’re just normal guys and gals. Guess what? We didn’t elect you because you are an average Joe, the boy next door. I for one want to believe that the person I elected to lead the most powerful nation in the world is superior to me. I am totally comfortable with that.
Do us all a favor Barack, next time spend your evening off in the White House where you’re safe.
