Obama Wisely Rejects British Scientific Society's Medal For... Conspicuous Merit In Breathing Successfully

I'm going to cut Obama a break and not follow the Tory lead at the Telegraph in calling this a snub.

The fact is, this is unwarranted and embarrassing. For God's sakes, they already gave him the Nobel Peace Prize for successfully not blowing up the planet his first three weeks as President.

Now they want to toss him a Royal scientific award?

For what? Metabolizing? Possessing the properties of mass and inertia? Going three-for-three on width, height, and depth?

Come on. Come on. This isn't Obama's fault; this is the fault of a brain-damaged "elite" looking to toss unwarranted honors at him and, inadvertently, subject him to further mockery.

They can't even see that. Their heads are so far up their asses it doesn't occur to them for a split-second that maybe there's something ridiculous about all this.

Sources close to the state visit said members of the Royal Society were “deeply offended” by the snub and had accused Mr Obama of being obsessed with his “street cred”.

The US President was offered the chance to receive the King Charles II medal, which is awarded in “exceptional circumstances” to heads of state who have “made an outstanding contribution to furthering scientific research in their country”.

Oh shut up you imbeciles.

A British government source close to the Obama visit said: “The Royal Society was really keen to do something with Obama and they expected him to be very honoured by the medal.

“Instead they received a very short response from his people saying that it would be better for him to visit a state school.

“The inference they took from that was that he was more interested in cultivating his street cred than in building links with British scientists.”

Congratulations, President Obama. You made the right call. That makes it three: Turning down a completely risible fake medal, successfully producing valid ID, and making a no-brainer decision about killing the United States' most elusive enemy.

By the way-- "street cred"? What the hell? These morons want to give him an unwarranted medal for existing, and when he doesn't show up, they go right to a quasi-racial put-down?

That's a real 180 there, isn't it? We love you we love you we love you... oh, you're not coming? You suck, darkie.

Pick one of the two poles of schizophrenic obsession and stick with it.

Thanks to Andrews Dad.

Hey, Brainiacs

In case you didn't notice, 2009 and 2010 did, in fact, happen.

Turn the page, Pointdexter. Turn the page.
