Quote of the Day

Balloon Juice:

"I want a president who breaks down and cries during press conferences. Maybe also one who gets so overwhelmed at times his advisors have to coax him out from under his desk. Fuck this keeping a cool head bullshit. I want someone just as neurotic as me."

And to think that all Keith Olbermann wants him to do is to 'get angry'* on camera and then take the necessary steps that he can take without congressional oversight (like publicly announcing that they're immediately stopping approval of offshore drilling permits currently in the pipeline (npi), for example).

Which at least is a perfectly valid 'request', while wishing the POTUS would hide under his desk etc is really just a very very strange visual, if not actually disturbing.

(*at BP, at the fact that the same ineffectual tech used in 1979 is being used today and touted as 'new' and 'amazingly advanced', that all three companies involved have been more interested in fingerpointing than actual results, the list just goes on and on. There's plenty to be angry about).
