You know how George Bush is constantly admitting that he’s made grave mistakes, and apologizing, and hoping to do better in the future? Hmm, no, I guess you don’t. Meanwhile, Barack Obama is leading by example, as this excerpt from Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me demonstrates. (Via Unfogged.)
The phone rings.
Lovelady: Lovelady. Newsroom.
Lovelady: This is he.
Obama: Nicholas, this is Barack Obama.
Lovelady: Hey, how’s it going?
Obama: Man, I am calling to publicly apologize for messin’ up your game. I felt terrible. I didn’t know there were any ladies around. I just wanted to let you know that I’m deeply sorry. But if she was that superficial, then she wasn’t for you.
Lovelady: (chuckles) Well, I really appreciate it.
Obama: Well okay, man. Bye bye.
The call ends.
I would definitely vote for Obama if I hadn’t already pledged my support to The Editors.
How often do you get to vote for a dinosaur?
