    I love these "off the record" moments that end up on the record.

    Well, here's a moment of a politician not lying. Kanye is a jackass. Maybe having the President of the USA call him out will get his head out of his ass and his narcissism in check.

    Everyone agrees Kanye West is a jackass. However, he will not change until he is banned from radio and/or dropped by his record label - things like that.

    The more likely scenario is that Kanye West's ego will become even more inflated knowing that the President cared enough to comment at all on something he did.

    I don't think his a jackass; but I love to jack his ass. I think his hot, and Obama is not.

    So not "everyone' thinks his a jackass.

    Lewis Black mentioned this dichotomy the other night: "That's a bittersweet moment. 'Wow, the president's talking about me? What'd he say?'"

    Why when this poor guys heart and sole are rotting away from bitterness.

    But then this being a site full of one eyed democrats with double standers, it was to be expected. They accuse others of being hatful, yet fail to see their own hate and wrongs.icon_neutral.gif

    Why on earth does a sitting president even know what's going on in pop culture? Shouldn't he be working on health care or something?

    The better question is why would the press assume the president knows about current pop culture events and flatly asks him about them.

    It's kinda hard to miss something like that when it happens on an Awards show that's presented internationally. And it doesn't take a genius to know that Kanye West is a jackass.

    Personally, I think it's cool that a President is in tune with what's going on in pop culture. Even a President needs to get a break once in awhile from the grind of the hardest job on earth.
