Presidential used to mean character, integrity and statesmanship.

Today, it means caricature, insanity and salesmanship.

Sadly it predates Clinton. Nixon's "Sock it to me?" on Laugh in came practically a generation earlier.

Really, that's just embarrassing. I'm happy you put the link up because I wouldn't have seen it otherwise. And I think the "slow jam" is a great idea - just not for the President of the United States making a political/campaign statement.

Maybe Fallon, Maher, SNL, etc. should do something related to the phony "Universities-for-profit" that are selling these kids on the value of going into debt for the rest of their lives for a "Criminal Justice" degree while lobbying for Gov guarantees on the loans which end up locking the kids into a debt situation as bad as debtor's prison.

I'm sorry, it wasn't even funny to me because I was so nauseated watching what looked like a desperate attempt to be 'cool' (which he is not)and to get attention, from the person who is supposed to be the leader of this country. I'm not opposed to a president having a sense of humor, and participating in something funny, but this president goes overboard with this attention-getting stuff of non-substance on a regular basis because he is inept at being a leader and doing what he needs to for this country. HE thinks he is cool, I think he's a joke.
