Obama gets called out

So, President Obama went on the Jay Leno show last night and it went well, except for the joke where he compared his bowling skills, or lack thereof, to the Special Olympics. 

And whatever, it’s a joke we all make a million times a day.  Except now, Kolan McConiughey, a bowler in the Special Olympics has demanded satisfaction from our president. 

“Bring it on, Obama!” he said. McConiughey is proud of the six Special Olympics bowling medals he’s won as well as the fact that he’s bowled five perfect games. “I challenge him! I’ll show him how to do it.”

I would give anything to see this happen.  Obviously, the President’s gonna eat a lot of crow on this because you can’t make fun of retards people with special needs, especially if you’re the President.  But he would earn a lot of goodwill if he invited Kolan out to the White House and made a special event out of it.  Had a few laughs, worked his charm, made a half-hearted pledge to help The Special Olympics out, etc.

    During the campaign for the White House in 2008, the media criticized Palin for being ‘common,’ and ‘not presidential.’ However, compare Sarah Palins attitude in this video created three weeks ago for the Special Olympics in Boise, Idaho.

    You decide the more ‘presidential’ among them:
