“This kind of thing is a constant problem for Mr. Obama” said one of his sycophants staff. “Everyone wants to bask in his sunshine, even the deceased.”

“Then again, it’s not surprising that the life-challenged are attracted to him as he was a fierce advocate for voting rights for the dead when he lived in Chicago.” …

…“Didn’t we do a story like three weeks ago about a person taking a picture at a funeral,” Glenn asked on radio this morning, “and we were like, ‘Who does that? Do you have no sense of where you are?’”…

They’ll look back on this selfie, years from now, and think “what on earth were we doing? We’re world leaders, not a bunch of giggling teenagers. We’re attending the memorial service of Nelson Mandela. Couldn’t we have waited a bit before goofing around?” The only person to come out of this with dignity in tact is Michelle Obama, who looks frosty to say the least…

What does Allan Gross and his family think about the handshake between Obama and Castro?

…We deserve a president with a better sense of timing or a gate keeper who keeps him ahead of the game.
