But I would eat them with Barack Obama. :)
He is such a nerd.

7. Another difference between Obama and Dubya
They both read the same book, but one President reads it to children and the other reads it for entertainment.

14. So, when a stranger or friend offers you something unusual ...

...you should try it to see if you like it.

This is clearly a subversive pro-drug message designed to destroy our youth and enslave them to Sam I Am.

19. But he's bowing to little children -- oh, the humiliation!
Bowing aside, did I detect just a hint of a message to the Tea Baggers in his choice of "try it, you might like it" as the text for the day?
