Barack Obama (the 44th President of the United States of America) appeared, last night, on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. An interesting method of "bringing his message to the people".
He didn't play saxophone, nor did he wear dark glasses.
The very first sitting President to appear on any late night talk show. Just a couple of buddies talking about sports (Bowling) and the world.
Apparently the bowling alley that Harry Truman had installed in the White House hasn't helped Barack's game much.. he's averaging 129. He made a self-deprecating joke about his lack of bowling skill, and everyone laughed... but realized afterward, that his joke was also disparaging to a large group of Americans... and apologized for it before the show aired.
It's so tough being a major public figure. You can't just have that "tender moment" with a buddy... in front of television cameras and 5 million viewers. A simple slip of the tongue and you have to apologize to 9.2 million people. Apparently he's not allowed to make an impromptu 5 minute walk either.
Wow, that's a large "empty" couch next to him... with those awful lumbar pillows.... (I hate those pillows)... ooops... I apologize to lumbar pillow manufacturers around the globe. I realize they're just trying to make a living and feed their familes. [memo to self on BarackOBerry: Send flowers to lumbar pillow manufacturers around the nation... and make sure they're not those damn Tulips... I hate Tulips... uh oh.]
