Sometimes I make a wacky humor joke that before Obama’s term is up, he’s going to host Saturday Night Live. So far he hasn’t announced any such plans, but this next one would be even better. Alexandra Myers reports:
After watching President Obama’s rendition of the Al Green song “Let’s Stay Together” during a fundraising event at the Apollo Theater, “American Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe asked him to make an appearance on the popular TV talent show, Ace Show Biz reported.
Lythgoe tweeted his desire to have the president on the show. “@BarackObama we loved your vocal performance so much we’d love to invite you on to #AmericanIdol this Season for a duet with Al Green,” he wrote.
Do you suppose Obama only became president to get his music career started? Well, that and the free plane.
This is the sort of presidential gravitas that has made the United States respected and feared throughout the world. Why, just look at the following from WaPo:
U.S. intelligence agencies believe that Iran is prepared to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States in response to perceived threats from America and its allies, the U.S. spy chief said Tuesday.
Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. said in prepared testimony that an alleged Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington that was uncovered last year reflects an aggressive new willingness within the upper ranks of the Islamist republic to authorize attacks against the United States.
Obama may or may not ever appear on American Idol, but when it comes to Iran, he’s always been idle.
At least Nero could play an instrument.
P.S. Fortunately, Obama has a better handle on economic issues:
Can’t find a job in your field of expertise? That’s pretty interesting, considering Obama knows better!
