“Harry, I do not only marvel where thou spendest thy time, but also how thou art accompanied,” is how Falstaff braces Prince Hal in one of the amusing tavern scenes in Henry IV, Part I. If Falstaff had taken better care of himself, and were still around today, it would be on point to make the same observation of our current commander-in-chief. (Leave aside that Hal’s dodgiest company was Falstaff himself.)
I learned this week that there is something called “BuzzFeed,” which apparently appeals to young males who wear their baseball caps backwards and have room temperature IQs. The tone is Three Stooges without the nuances. President Obama went on this sophomoric site, panning and mugging and leaving no doubt that a career in standup is out of the question after he leaves 1600. The justification for this brain-dead performance was Obama was trying to get young Americans to go along with the ObamaCare gag. Anyone dumb enough to tumble to this come-on would need to be watered twice a week.
