Giggles, Guffaws, Beer and Obama-mania.

Webcomic courtesy xkcd.

Jokes apart, I'm a big fan. I'm still completely and rapturously in awe of Obama. And considering a man who can be a talker as smooth as THIS, for the love of brilliant oratory(if nothing else), allow him the odd foot-in-mouth for once!

What's more? The president settles a scandal over jugs of ale!
I mean, this just escapes comprehension. The Harvard professor(Mr. Gates) , the cop(Mr. Crowley) and the Prez himself, bonding over beer like a bunch of college jocks, in all their post-minor-fist-fight glory. In the rose garden at the White House. That, my friends, is something truly amazing.

See the difference!
If the PM here calls someone like those two for peace talk over beer ,will he be PM the next day??:D

@ Misanthropist : If it weren't for the occasional joy of being credited for it, I would have long abandoned it.

And after having spend a considerable time wandering through yours, I'm pretty sure it works both ways.

Consider yourself welcomed with a red carpet and drum-rolls. :)

@Srivatsan : Precisely why I think it is "truly amazing"!

Obama was the first president ever to have a poetry and jazz party at the white house. And he's so SMOOTH. Shallow reasons to like a President, but hey, he's not MY president. I can like him for being the hawt man he is.

Maybe it's time some hooch, toddy and bhang was introduced to the aristocrats of Race Course road as well.

@Death On Two Legs : The reasons may be shallow, but atleast they are very valid! He has presence, and he makes it a point to make good use of it. Not much can be said in that regard for our own Mrs. Pratibha Patil. Does she even exist? As for the PM. Well, I understand that he does not wish to err. But then, he doesn't do/say much of anything at all! Precautionary measure, perhaps?

Sherry Wasandi said...

@Anty : Now wouldn't THAT be a sight for sore eyes! I can just about manage to imagine a drunk Manmohan Singh. Something tells me, he'll be prone to giggling. A lot of giggling.

It's the "Happy Singh" stereotype perhaps.


Anty said...

Well, my friend's father works in the PMO and he says that he is a "Happy Singh" but very much in control of his liquor.

I say, that's exactly what the country needed.
