Putting Words in His Mouth

by Dave Schuler on June 2, 2014

Michael Weiss re-imagines the president’s speech at West Point. You might find it amusing. Here’s a sample:

To these critics, I would only pose a few simple questions. Can any nation on earth amass a hashtag campaign on Twitter faster than the United States of America? Has any nation in the history of the world held so many international conferences in Switzerland in so short a period of time? Does any one constitutional republic have a former leader so easy to mock and blame for all the problems that have ensued well after he has gone?

The answer, of course, is no.

Then again you might not.

The only humor appropriate for discussing modern politics is black humor.

No doubt this observation is also racist.

It’s amusing because underneath the wry comments he’s pretty spot-on!
