A Telepromper Instead of A Clipboard
I tried watching the President on 60 Minutes last night, but after a few minutes my attention began to wander. And then it hit me: we have tuned this man out. Totally. He is like the NBA coach in his fourth job and during timeouts you watch him talk to his team and no one is listening. No one even gives him any eye contact. They have heard the same tired speech more times than Ed McMahon said "Here's Johnny!" So they just zone out until the timeout is over, and then wander back onto the court.
In short, Obama is Doug Collins, and America is Deshawn Stevenson.
