Obama Writes Fourth Grader a Memorable Absence Note

By Michael A. Fletcher
GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- John Corpus let his 10-year-old daughter, Kennedy, skip her last day of fourth grade at Aldo Leopold Community School to attend a packed town hall meeting where she could see the president of the United States up close.

But things turned out to be more exciting than either one of them imagined.

First, President Obama called on Corpus to ask a question about his plans for health care reform. As he posed his query, he let drop that his daughter was skipping school to see the president.

Does she need a note? Obama asked.

Playing along, Corpus said he would take Obama up on the offer. To his surprise, Obama was serious.

"What's her name," Obama asked, reaching in his suit pocket for a pen. When Corpus answered "John," Obama repeated: "Her name?"

"Kennedy," Corpus replied.

"That's a cool name," Obama said, as he started to compose the missive.

"To Kennedy's teacher," read the note, written in black ink over the president's distinctive signature. "Please excuse Kennedy's absence.... she's with me."

Obama does have quite the sense of humor.  Did you see him order Steven Colbert's head shaved on television the other night?  It was great.

That's hilarious.  I would have never imagined a president playing along with gags like that...how we've changed.

Okay, back to that Phage game!

Americans are so gay.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

I've not been following the Russian tour, but quick glances at the headlines shows an obsession with Michelle.  Russians share love for veggies with Michelle, etc. etc.  It's like I'm reading headlines from Eva Peron's Rainbow Tour.
