It’s nice to see that Obama has already found his niche: late night comedy.

The man is a total buffoon.

We are steamrolling you, some buffoon.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Whatever Bush did wrong (and there's plenty to draw from), this was still an insensitive gaffe on Obama's part. You don't make fun of disabled people to try and show that you can keep up the witty repartee with Jay Leno. I'll bet his mom was disappointed in him. I know mine would be if I had said it.

Is there a way to suggest that another has no class, while retaining your own?
