I can has SuckItUpWithAStraw?

At last, something Obama can wrap his competence around:

"O, that this too too solid slush would melt,
Thaw and resolve itself into a Slurpy! "

"This picture pretty much sums up the Obama presidency. No one who aspires to the job "leader of the free world" can be seen sipping a cocktail of this sort. Bourbon or Scotch neat, yes. Vodka? Better than a mixed drink but engendering a certain amount of suspicion. A whipped cream "Bushwhacker" in a plastic cup with a Maraschino cherry on top? With a straw?! Never! -- What... no paper umbrella? @ westsound modern

If he wasn't so dangerous, this man would now be officially sad; an eternal poster child for the tragedy of being reared without a real father of any kind. Given the eternal chick gloss on this cocktail, it's very possible that the only man Obama has ever been really close to is his wife. Still, that's no reason he gets to take it out on the rest of the planet.

I figured that "suck it up" was what he was doing during all those deep bows.

This is the drink a girl would order with her girlfriends. I bet he goes to the bathroom with M holding hands and laughing.

I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't make the "I can't suck it up with a straw" connection with this picture on my post. Well done sir...well done.

He does look good with that drink though. Very natural.

Weird. Clinton was our first black president, and now Obama is our first female president.

O needs to turn in his Man Card, if he ever had one in the first place. That fru-fru drink really is "the last straw". Sorry, couldn't resist.

Gerard:

Revise the collage you had up a few months ago of Obama hanging curtains. Please add this one to the collage.

Ah, girl drinks. When I was bartending many moons ago, I detested making girl drinks because they interrupted my workflow. Preparing them always went against the natural grain of preparing real alcoholic beverages meant for adults.

And speaking of grownup behavior, is the "Bushwacker" meme meant to be a sly pun on O's part along the same lines as him rubbing his naughty finger against the side of his face for the camera?

Reagan used to hang out with Roy Rogers. Obama drinks them.

Yeah, I'm glad someone finally pointed it out.
