I often laugh when I hear people refer to Barack Obama as an intellectual elitist.
He may be an elitist, but he’s no intellectual – a point made even more clear by the Dude in Chief’s (hereinafter, DIC) appearance on Thursday’s Daily Show, with Jon Stewart.
This followed on the heel’s of the DIC’s latest in-dialect rant where he listed a laundry list of nouns, and then incapable of negotiating an agreement between subject and number, used “has” instead of “have” – a point noted by few in the media. Guess I’m racist, or at least elitist, for pointing it out. Oh well, I guess while I’m at it, I’ll note what an abysmal failure affirmative action was and how crazy it is that we know exponentially more about Dan Maes’ academic background than the president’s.
His latest blunder is now infamous: He doesn’t know the meaning of the word “pun.” On the Daily Show, in a delusional attempt to brag about his accomplishments, the DIC claimed Larry Summers did a “heckuva job.” (No, he wasn’t using “job” as a pun, though I’m sure many viewers were).
Here’s the video of the exchange [Updated video] :
Most analysts focused on the intended part as being the blatant lie that it was, but the diction issue was troubling as well. Granted, if forced to choose one subject for this phony to have aced, I would settle for Econ 101 over English 101. That Dude is a real DIC when it comes to managing the economy. Pun intended.
