High on Obama

It really is, given the state of political discourse, a perfect headline from CNN:

Was Obama’s answer about drug use too honest?

Clinton gives a ridiculous “didn’t inhale” when asked if he smoked weed ; an answer that is still the punchline of jokes. We hear that nonsense and anoint him as the political genius of his time (albeit a really, really bad pot smoker).

Obama says, yeah, I smoked pot in high school and indeed, “The point was to inhale. That was the point.”

And we wonder if he’s being too honest.

A nonsensical lie = political genius
Stone cold truth = too honest

I wonder why most Americans are disgusted by the political process (including its coverage).

Concentration is important!
