President Obama

David Brooks is Very Serious

On MSNBC today:

"And so, Obama's problem is he doesn't seem like the kind of guy who could go into an Applebee's salad bar, and people think he fits in naturally there."

First, Applebee's doesn't have a goddamn salad bar, and, secondly, who the hell cares?! Applebee's salad bar? I'm sure Abe Lincoln or FDR would have totally fit in at an Applebee's, right? What an ass. We're talking about the President of the United States -- not the assistant manager from Blinds To Go on his lunch break.

Adding, when do you think was the last time Brooks was inside -- or even within spitting distance -- of an Applebee's? Jerkass.
