Obama: Like Dan Quayle Only Dumber

It’s a good thing Obama is The Chosen One or he’d be a laughing stock.

Yesterday’s “Potatoe" moment came during a visit the Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

He did express curiosity about the filming of a chase scene in "North by Northwest," Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 classic starring Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint that included a death-defying scramble over Rushmore's presidential faces.

"How did they get up there in the first place?" he asked ranger Wesley Jensen.

"They didn't. It was a movie set," Jensen told him.

If you haven’t seen “North by Northwest”, now you know what you are doing this weekend. It’s great. That said, it was made in 1959 and the special effects weren’t really fooling anyone. Except apparently Obama. The Mount Rushmore sequence is about 1:52 in.

Obviously this isn’t anything other than a mildly amusing goof. We’ve all said and done stupid stuff and most of us would look like retarded fools if we had cameras following us around like Obama, Clinton and McCain. The issue is, when Republicans do stuff like this it's proof they are drooling imbeciles. When Obama repeatedly does it? Just more filler for the memory hole.
